That's all I did while grouper season was closed. People bought Lion fish faster than anything else.

I had lionfish for the first time this week and was impressed how good it tasted.

Glad you and others are mounting a major assault on those rascals.

Re: 300+ pounds in May.

I still can't believe you gut all those fish. But like you've said before, the higher price justifies it. Keep looking for a full 19 incher (greater than 477mm),,,that's the world record and many get very close to that size up there.
