    Fresh from the Chesapeake Bay! She was 39 inches & fat .... I wish we had a scale.




    Here is 3/4 of one fillet! They are rubbed with 'Shaking the Tree' made by The Dizzy Pig. I just added a chunk of butter and a slice of lemon prior to this photo. I grilled the fillets on indirect heat with apple chunks for a nice subtle smokey flavor. I took the temp to 400* (no need for low & slow with these fish) and took them off as they flaked with the help of a fork. Boy were they goooood.

    I guess lots of folks had cabin fever from the Nor' Easter that Hurricane Ida provided us. The Bay was pretty flat, and the marine radio was buzzing with folks yelling out "Fish on" and later reporting the sizes .... heard lots of 40 -45 inchers being netted. Good Eats!
