Hey folks,

just got a photo on my cell - from a friend. I'm a greenhorn and have never seen such a fish before. I tried to find it but had no luck!

Can you help me please?

    You have one grunt, one parrotfish, and one mangrove snapper
    For the love of all outdoors recreational activities....what my spelling is off, that will learn ya. Pimping ain't easy unless u went to FSU, its a BS course.
    What do u get when you can connect the dots, color inside the lines, and get your release papers.....sentence served, times up at Felon sentenced university.

    The only difference between FSU and all the other colleges are other colleges accept you into the university's. At FSU you are taken into custody.

    Thank you, it was the parrotfish I was looking for! Amazing, man! Thanks!

    Do they have a good food value?

    Just a friendly reminder... Your friend is taking a chance on breaking the law if he harvests a fish, but doesn't know the state regs for said fish.

    I know but he is located outside the US. And it seems to me that they have just little regulations there, sadly!

    Good point! A prime example of why I try not to assume too much. Welcome to the forum.

    Parrotfish are seldom eaten but said to be very good. The snapper & grunt are delish!:thumbsup

    Parrot fish are fantastic....a member of the wrasse family which of course is the same family of the hog snapper....they sometime get the cig. Problems....

    I immediately thought it was a blue striped grunt too, but now... hmmmmm

    Either way, great grouper bait.

    Might be a grunt. Tough to say.
