I'm not talking about the ultimate cost of the fish we catch when you figure, fuel, bait, tackle, etc. Fish market prices. I was at a farmer's market --- sea bass $21.95 lb. :shock:

Black Seabass is so good I'd almost argue it's worth it.


this has to be the most disrespectful and disgusting thread I've ever seen posted

Sb is one of my favorite fish to catch and eat, but I will not pay that price.

I once bought a mack to use as bait from Stop & Shop
it really wasn't even "bait" grade

I hear Stripers go for something like $18 a pound
amazing
I guess I eat well


Signature? I don't need no stinking signature.

I just saw sea bass for $8 a lb at shoprite. I spent $60 yesterday and only caught shorts. :squid:

Wait, make that $120. Took my son.

Not black sea bass...unless it was a stupid error on shop rites part. I"ve seen a few steals at the sea food dept but not like that. :shock: Black sea bass on average runs around 18.99/lb. Its delicious but IMO its flavor is not so complex and deep that one should be paying 20 bucks a pound for. Especially considering you don't know how long its been dead.

Awesome produce and some good items in the dry section. Still rather go to a farm, farmers market, fish monger or catch it myself.
