HOW TO: SIMPLE SEA ROBIN FILLET

With its mild taste, abundance in local waters and eager willingness to take a baited hook, the sea robin could be the perfect inshore target species. Here is a simple way to prepare them for the table!
By Toby Lapinski


I read an article in Long Island fisherman 30-40 years ago talking about eating them. I caught a big one camping in Montauk in May. I filleted it and it was riddled with worm holes... YUK!!!!!! Never tried again.

I have posted something about Virginia. If there are sweet little towns you recommend we check out... Before I bite the bullet and flee eastern Long Island, the bride and me will take our retired and retarded . butts to check them out..
Hard to find a quiet rural farmy place with the sea..

Bruce,

John Geiser from the Asbury Park Press wrote a book back in that time frame called "The Shore Catch"... where, if I recall, he gives the edibility, with recipes, of virtually every fish caught within the new york bite... except for most rays and a mola mola (ocean sunfish)

But here we are again (maybe magazine articles go in cycles, just like fish )

Westport, Massachusetts. If I were your age looking for that I would choose that location. When you are my age, 80, you kind of resist change. I have a Jersey friend, who ate bambi-burgers here last week, who is on the edge of a buy in Westport.

Westport is a great town to relocate to. I have been working there building custom homes for the last 15 years and I love it. We have been selling new homes at a good clip. People tell us the property taxes are better here than where ever they are coming from. Lots of good restaurants in the area..... and best of all... shore or boat fishing just minutes away.

I caught my first "fifty" there from shore in 1964. Of course, its curse is that it is in Massachusetts. The Constitution has no meaning in "Taxachusetts". And they screw their dead politicians into the ground rather than burry them. Tow operators split towing fees with the cops who view that as their part-time job. But then are not all the states kind of shockwa? If all are equal, then we are back to judging the fishing and lifestyle -- Westport, MA.

I'll agree nothing is on the level all around & I don't believe everything that is published . But to believe fish tales is in the imagination of many who write them. This is a good place to be.

I think there is a perception that SW fishing is boat fishing. That could be becaue there is less surfcasting as the years go by. Twenty years from now, given access limitations, overall resistance to hard work, there will be no interest in waders.

Twenty years from now fisheries management will sell you a bunch of tags for each species and you will use these for attaching to each scup, bluefish, bass, tog etc. They will sell you fish by species like they do with inland animals in hunting.
