RECENT CATCH INFO: Fish Landed @ Southport, NC
Catch method: hook n line
White Grunt may be one the more under appreciated fish swimming off our coast. A bottom dwelling fish, they are often caught when targeting favorites like grouper and triggerfish.
With a very mild, white flaking flesh its a real crowd pleaser in the kitchen as well. Similar to small snapper and grouper in taste, grits and grunt have become a popular meal amongst South Atlantic fishermen.
Grunts have seen a boost in popularity on dinner menus due to their abundance, easiness to catch, and tighter restrictions on other snapper species.
