Tracy Moss Catches Gafftop at Snoopy's

Tracy Moss sent in this picture to us of a gafftop he caught near Snoopy's. Fishing with his mother off the pier they were able to catch this beauty.

These fish are also known as gafftopsail fish because of their long sail like dorsal fins. Many people keep these and fry them up for dinner. It's a white meat and difficult to fillet because they are bony and slimy. However, larger ones can provide nice fillets. Be careful not to confuse these fish with the common "hard head" or saltwater catfish. We don't let those on the boat.

Y'all have a great day of fishin,
Dave Alexander
