Baited Facts

The hogfish is one of the most unique looking fish found primarily in the tropic and subtropic waters. They are given their name for the way they feed; rooting around like a hog on corals and natural reefs with their elongated snout the Hogfish enjoys small crustaceans. Their feeding habits makes it difficult to catch them on hook and line, however, they are an easy target for spearfishermen. Not exactly known for being a great escape artist these fish do not win an award for being smart but they make up for it with their camouflage ability. Similar to a chameleon they can change their colors to blend in with the colors of the reef they are around. If you want to talk about a fish that has white meat this is where you begin. The meat from a hogfish it is so white it is almost clear when held to a light and can be cooked many ways.
