LOL...........

There is a pocket of flesh about the size of your fist right under that armour plate you are talking about.
It's really shameful how many guys throw that away, or even clean the tuna appropriately.
I am not a proud man, I have gotten literally pounds of Tuna of carcasses after the guy that cleaned them walked away.
This does not make the Tuna gods happy and you will have light catches for eternity. (or a long time)

The asian market fishermen even take what we leave behind.
They cook the bones and all.

The Eagle has arrived :D

10:15 this morning Dry ice works wonders. UPS has their terminal 5 min. from my place, they do me good ;)

1 package is thawing for today's feast...............Thanks to your generosity we will eat well tonight. I love fish :hungry: :DBfire:

The other package is for Sunday.........eggs in the morning, fish in the afternoon. I should have some Slap Ya Mama by Saturday. :D

Interesting info on the cheeks. I'll have to catch me a couple big carp and eat their cheeks :D

I'll have to google gill plate cheeks ;)

Actually..the Hawaiian/Chinese make soup out of the aku and ahi (tuna)heads..worst smell you can think of cooking on the stove :roll: ..That's one of the few things forbidden in this house when I'm here.The smell lingers for days. :evil: .and yes,THEY(not me) fight over the eyeballs...
I like eating fish and seafood...octopus,shrimp,clams(any kind),oysters,mussels,opihi(hawaiian limpets),top snail,sea cucumbers,sashimi or sushi of any kind..Aku head soup?..NOPE! :evil:

Do they season it before or after cooking? Or no seasoning?


My parade got rained on and blew away :(

I got my new stove ready for its first test burn and it started to rain. That was not a deterent, I had a set-up to protect from the rain. The wind.......the wind was terrible and had to cancel my burn. :( I was thinking to use the hot coals to grill at least one fish filet. bummer, bummer, bummer!!!!! :evil:

This is what the stove looks like packed with vertical stacked wood and paper for starter. Even made a grille for it. The grille is from a crock pot bread maker.

So I had to bake the fish filets in the kitchen oven. I seasoned the fish but didn't really need to. The fish tasted fantastic. :D There were 4 filets in the ziplok, I ate 3 :o all by my lonesome. My wife was not expected home for dinner so it was just me and the fish. I had a salad prepared but passed on that and just ate fish. I like fish!!!!! :D I'm eager to grille a filet with just salt and pepper so i can taste the fish. This species of fish is not fishy.

I seasoned with Light Italian salad dressing, Old Bay seasoning and garlic powder. I then sprinkled Italian bread crumbs on top. Baked at 400 for 1/2 hr. That worked for me :DB: :hungry:

Thank you very much "simplepeddler" Very nice of you to share your catch :D

For sure Boucoup bien, tre bien, merci beaucoup :D

This summer I sure would like to taste those tuna cheeks raw.

I fired up the stove today and it burned too hot. Need to plug at least 2 of the holes. Now it has some nice color to it. The stove as is makes for a great Iditerod stove :D I feel confident that one load of wood can boil 2 gallons of water.

More tests to follow. I think I'll shoot for grilled red fish for Saturday instead of Sunday. I think I mentioned I like fish and eggs ;)

Before I left for vacation I grilled the remainder of my filets on my new found stove.
