Don Gibson has been fishing since his late teens.  He has fished in the Florida Keyes, the Florida Gulf and Florida Atlantic. Needless to say he knows a thing or two about how to pick fresh fish.  Here are some tips:

  • If the heads are on the fish, look at the eyes to see if they are cloudy or clear.  Clearer eyes suggest a fresher fish.
  • Check the flexibility of the fish.  Is it more stiff or flexible?  The flexibility is a good thing.
  • A soft and soggy fish is not good.  Firm and bouncey is what you want.
  • It has to be somewhat fishy but no overbearing smell.  Sometimes the fish smell is an indication of freshness.
