This gent is Canadian, and refers to it as a Sheepshead.

I might have to try this. He says the fillets are boneless.

Somebody needs to tell him that's not a Sheepshead. I wonder what he'd call a Sandbass?

LOL. Probably call it a "White bass", like most of the country does.

I love learning about what folks in other parts of the country call the same species of fish.

For the first 36 years of my life when someone said "sand bass" they meant one of these two fish

One is a spotted sand bass (or bay bass) and the other is the barred sand bass. It took a little time for me to adjust to calling white bass sand bass.

If you ever see a post of mine where I mention "White Bass / Sand Bass", that's because I'm cut/pasting that same post onto several different boards, only one of which is in OK. This way the folks in other parts of the country know what I'm talking about.

When people back home in SoCal (and here) ask me how I like living in NE OK I tell them that I love it, but that it took me two years to learn the language.
There are many things about Southern California that I miss dearly, particularly my boat on the ocean, but I bless the day that we moved here. I can (and do) go out there for a visit (get some speech therapy ) and some good sea food, and the come back home to Bixby.

Interestingly enough, at my girlfriends family's market here in Tulsa, they sell Frozen, freshly caught Red Drum at their seafood section. I may have to try this, never thought to much of drum as being eating friendly!

I may try a 'sheepshead'. I'm still grinning about the name, but wondering if it might be really good. Didn't look any harder to filet than a sandie (That's short for sand bass CalOkie! ) .
I commonly catch 3-4 pounders on the river. And now curiosity has me.
Wonder if I could get Carla to try it, before I taste it?
One filet of sheepshead for her,
and one filet of crappie for me!

Okay Danny, now I am confused. Sheepshead live in the kelp beds off the Southern California coast (see below)

Is this what you mean

BTW.... filleted, brined, boiled, cubed, and chilled, these guys make an excellent substitute for lobster (CA lobster)

Red drum is AKA redfish - one of the best eating fish in the ocean!

It is impossible to overemphasize the importance of clean drums...

Matter of opinion. Kind of fishy tasting those red drum. Just like freshwater drum. Yes I know it is all how you cook it. Same as spoonbill, channel cat, sand bass and every fishy tasting fish that is not crappie or blue cat.

Just a matter of opinion - ooh I already said that!!!

Well, you blew it for me Fishdude. I don't have special cooking skills, so I better stay away from the 'fishy' drum.
