Merluzzi- If the old timers were still alive they’d be having a field day.

Guys like Mickey Red, Leo The Flounder, they’d be going crazy for the whiting that’s been coming in.  Fried, in a broodu, you name it- Whiting, my favorite fish to eat.

Let the Menagani Babu eat 30 day old swordfish, I’ll eat a mess of fried whiting any day over that crap.


When we were in Ravello, Italy we saw the Merluzzi at a Farmer’s Market. Same fish in the Mediterranean that we’re landing here in Gloucester.

    Watch that “Menagani Babu” Shit! LOL Some of us eat the good stuff. Sea snails, catfish livers and squid so small they don’t even have beaks and eyes yet.

        LOL!!! Don’t knock it unless you tried it along with fresh Fried Haddock Spawn!

        Ocean Catfish (Wolf Fish) can’t be caught now anyway but when they lift the restrictions there will be plenty to go around!!!!!!!!

          You’re killing me swimdad…
          You had to come back with Fried Haddock Spawn, something supremely gross.
          Just don’t invite me over for snacks any time soon…….cause I won’t come.

    We take Whiting in the surf here from mid-winter till spring. They are very good eating but, compare to those landed in Gloucester

  4. Bill Hubbard says:
