    It was actually really good. Firm, flaky and very mild. No off flavors, pretty unique. Not going to smoke the rest like I had planned, saving it for the grill.

    Re: Sold MyBoat

    I know how you feel Waterdog. I bought my first boat in 1978 and sold my last one in 2016. Been doing a lot of bank fishing lately. I donít catch as many fish, but man, it sure is relaxing.
