    Awesome! Well done!

    Yeah, I wondered....

    We marked TONS of fish there but like you said... super deep and super strong current.

    Caught it from the shore. Really sketchy spot that requires a bit of a hike and is only accessible on a low tide. Tried trolling out there a couple times. Current rips through there, windy and nearly 100’ deep. No fish and not much fun either.

    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.

    I had a similar surprise a few years ago, the one I caught was bleach white and I was pretty confused when I cut into it. Learned about ivory kings and the meat was great. The lady collecting carcasses wasn't interested in it at the cleaning station so must be rare.

    if a hen has big developed eggs, even if she's still chrome, her meat will be very pale. Hens use the fats and nutrients stored in their muscle to produce eggs.

    It’s common for meat to vary in color. Nothing to worry about. Congrats on a nice fish.
