When I lived in FL. we used to go to the docks and buy just caught fish right off the boat and I was wondering if there is anywhere to do that here, although I think there's rules around here that keep that from happening, but not sure... I remember also going deep sea fishing in MA, and no fish in stores or restaurants tastes quite like it.. Also, I have had excellent trout at Seawitch and Zalkeks, but have never had a trout caught at a river, put on a stick over the coals and have always had the fantasy to have that, althought I dont fish.. Does trout taste a lot different just caught?? And is there anyplace to buy it fresh from people fishing on the river.?. I read that North Shore has great trout rivers, but curious if they are good eating, or just for throwing back. Thanks!
