Jimmy’s Creel

HAWK’S ARE GETTING RUSSELL SOME PROTECTION.  WEATHER’S GONNA BE KILLER!  WHAT COULD MAKE THIS WEEKEND BETTER?
SOME PHENOMENAL FRESH SEAFOOD FROM GEMINI FISH MARKET, THAT’S WHAT!
CHECK OUT THIS AMAZING LINE UP…

FIRST SHOT OF THE YEAR FOR FRESH LOCAL SPOT PRAWNS!!
SWEETEST SHRIMP ON THE PLANET OUT OF BELLINGHAM ARE MAKING AN EARLY APPEARANCE THIS WEEKEND!  WE USUALLY DON’T SEE ANY FRESH SPOTS UNTIL HOOD CANAL KICKS IN LATER IN MAY/JUNE AND THOSE ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN!  THIS IS REALLY A RARE TREAT!!  THEY’LL GO FAST SO GET YOUR NAME ON SOME IF YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE ‘EM!!

ANOTHER RARE TREAT…
LAST SHOT OF THE FRESH ALASKAN GOLDEN KING CRAB FOR THE SEASON!!
YOU WON’T SEE ANY MORE FRESH KING CRAB UNTIL OCTOBER/NOVEMBER MORE THAN LIKELY SO YOU BETTER GET AFTER THIS!  SUPPLY IS LIMITED!!

FRESH LOCAL RAZOR CLAMS
ARE MAKING THEIR 2ND APPEARANCE OF THE YEAR!!
WEATHER’S NOT GONNA GET GREAT UNTIL SATURDAY OR SUNDAY SO MAYBE TOMORROW YOU FRY UP SOME FRESH RAZORS OR MAKE SOME NICE RAZOR CLAM CHOWDER!!
THERE’S NOTHING LIKE FRESH RAZORS!!

FRESH ALASKAN HALIBUT CHEEKS
THEY’VE BEEN BEAUTIFUL THIS WEEK!  FIRST SHOT IN YESTERDAY WITH SOME MORE COMING IN TOMORROW!

HUGE THICK FILLETS OF BEAUTIFUL JUMBO FRESH LONG LINE ROUGHEYE ROCKFISH
OTHERWISE KNOWN AS PACIFIC SEABASS!!  AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, THIS IS MY FAVORITE FISH!
IF I HAD TO CHOOSE ONE THING THAT I HAD TO EAT EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE, IT WOULD BE THIS FISH!!  MILD, SWEET, AND MEATY!  GOT A MEAT LOVER IN YOUR FAMILY THAT SWEARS THEY DON’T LIKE FISH?  SHOVE SOME OF THIS IN THEIR MOUTH AND TELL THEM TO TELL YOU THEY DON’T LIKE IT.  THEY CAN’T…A. BECAUSE THEIR MOUTH WILL BE FULL AND B. ‘CAUSE NOBODY DOESN’T LIKE BIG FAT SWEET AND MEATY ROCKFISH!!
FORGET ABOUT MAHI MAHI…THIS STUFF MAKES THE BEST FISH TACOS YOU’LL EVER TRY!!

FRESH SAND DABS ANYONE?
BEAUTIFUL PAN-READY SAND DABS WAITING FOR YOU TO DUST THEM IN PRIDE OF THE WEST AND GIVE THEM A QUICK PAN-FRY!  WE DON’T SEE THESE VERY AND THEY WON’T STICK AROUND LONG!
GET YOUR NAME ON SOME OF THESE!!

FRESH HAWAIIAN SWORDFISH HAS BEEN BEAUTIFUL LATELY AND THE PRICE IS RIGHT!!
WE’RE RUNNING A WEEKEND SPECIAL AT $16.99LB  REG. $19.99LB
THIS STUFF NEVER GOES ON SPECIAL!!  TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT WHILE YOU CAN!
TRY OUR FIRE RUB OR CITRUS GARLIC PEPPER AND SLAP A SLAB O’ SWORD ON THE GRILL!!

OUR HUGE FRESH DRY-PACK MAINE SCALLOPS ARE DAY BOAT THIS WEEKEND!!
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?  THIS MEANS THEY DON’T GET ANY FRESHER!
THEY’LL BE STICKY DRY AND SUPER SWEET!!  WE PAY A LITTLE MORE DOUGH FOR THESE, BUT WE CAN’T ALWAYS GET THEM, AND YOU CAN’T FIND A BETTER SCALLOP ON THE MARKET!
MOST OF THESE GO TO WHITE TABLE CLOTH RESTAURANTS WHERE YOU’D PAY $60 FOR 3 SCALLOPS!!

FRESH ALASKAN KING SALMON SHOULD BE IN DECENT SUPPLY THIS WEEKEND!!
WE’LL EVEN SEE A COUPLE OF WHITE’S IN THE HOUSE!!  PRICE IS STILL HOLDING PRETTY STRONG BUT THESE FISH HAVE BEEN ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!  WE SHOULD BE DOWN JUST A TOUCH IN PRICE THIS WEEKEND IF ALL WORKS OUT AS PLANNED!!

FRESH AIR-SHIPPED ALASKAN HALIBUT, FATTY MCFATTERSON LING COD, BEAUTIFUL FRESH BLACK COD, AND KILLER SASHIMI AHI ROUND OUT THE LINE UP.

LOTS OF CLAMS, MUSSELS, OYSTERS!!

TONS OF WILD SHRIMP INCLUDING THE FREAKISHLY HUGE BAJA WHITE SHRIMP THAT ARE JUST BEGGING YOU TO THROW THEM ON THE GRILL THIS WEEKEND!!

BFCs ARE GONNA BE TIGHT.  SOUNDS LIKE CATCHES ARE DOWN AND A LOT OF COASTAL FISHERMAN ARE SWITCHING THEIR EFFORTS TO OTHER SPECIES THAT ARE MORE PLENTIFUL.
HOPEFULY WE GET SOME INSIDE OPENERS SOON.  WE WILL HAVE A FEW, BUT THEY’RE GONNA GO FAST!

LIMITED CRAB IS THE ONLY NEGATIVE THING IN THE SEAFOOD WORLD RIGHT NOW UNLESS YOU FEEL THAT DECIDING BETWEEN SO MANY AMAZING FISHES IS A NEGATIVE.  IF THAT’S THE CASE, I SAY DON’T PUT THAT KIND OF PRESSURE ON YOURSELF!  SPREAD IT AROUND AND GET A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING!!

LET’S START WITH PAN-FRYING SOME RAZORS AND DABS ON THIS KIND OF COLD AND RAINY FRIDAY AND THEN PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS ON THE WEEKEND AND GRILL UP A PILE OF EVERYTHING!!  SUNDAY’S GONNA BE 80, MONDAY’S GONNA BE 84!!
LET’S GO!!

THANKS
HOPE TO SEE YOU THIS WEEKEND!!
