I've been enjoying good quality black bass lately from 99 ranch and Marina markets from Foster City and also the ones in Cupertino (Marina Cupertino is by far my favorite and has more tanks). Not too long ago they also had striped bass as well. Both were straight off the live tanks.
For some reason they don't carry live striped bass anymore (out of season?). Black bass is hovering around the $7.99 to $8.50 a pound price point. Was curious if there was a cheaper or alternate live/fresh source in the Peninsula/north end of south bay for black or striped bass (along 101 or the 85 route hopefully), or an equivalent kind of fish that is not boney (silver carp is cheaper but way too boney). SF Chinatown is out of bounds for me, sadly.
I haven't tried the Lion markets yet which aren't quite the same as 99 ranch or Marina...are these viable alternatives?
