Some folks think of garfish as just a fish to throw away, but if they
are cleaned and cooked properly, they really taste great!
Garfish, or some people just call them gar, or some locals call them Choupique (pronounced, "shoe-pick" have the texture of chicken, but no, they do not taste like chicken! They are also not a flaky fish.
Garfish can get pretty big! Some have been found to be 10 feet long, and can weigh as much as 300 lbs. That's a lot of good eating, if you are lucky enough to catch one!
