Fished the Savage's Ditch turnout on Monday, using frozen mullet from Old Inlet. On the outer bar I hooked up with the biggest sea robin I have ever seen, easily 18-20" and about 3-4 pounds. Not thinking much more of it I tossed it back, rebaited and hit the bar again. In comes his younger brother, a bit shorter and lighter, but not much. Made a blue can aided decision to give it a shot in House-Autry. Turned out to be a nice white meat with a decent flavor. So, if all you are catching is sea robin, give it a shot.

Savages Ditch

Did you have your truck on the beach or did you walk on? See anything else caught? Gotta watch those "blue cans"...Sea Robin is real good Flounder bait and now we know that it's good table fare also. Thanks for the report...hitting the surf down there this Sat. 11/01/03.:)

I was with my dad and we took his jeep on the beach, left about half way between the ramp and life saving station. We also caught skates, a few bluefish and a dogfish. Hoping for the striped ones, but no joy.

I must of caught about 200 sea robins this year and I've been told and read that it is very good table fare I just can't bring myself to eat one.
