The whiting are actually around in good numbers but you need to get past those pinkies. After dark has been doing well (landbased)

Re: Fish id?

The flesh is tough as nails. And green/blue tinge. But great for cutting the fillet into thin slices and stir frying asian style. Or sashimi if you're game for a nice chewy texture
