About Scotty G
I live in Governor’s Harbour right on the water with two rescued potcakes, Danger and Angie Dickinson. I spearfish right off my property and am free diving for them along the West side of the main island and many of the little islands offshore. Many a day my dogs will follow me along the rocks as I make my way up and down the coast.
What do you like about lionfish hunting?
I enjoy hunting them knowing that I’m helping to try and keep the reefs healthy. I also enjoy eating them and sharing them with others who haven’t ever tasted them or considered them as a food source. I usually save them up until I have several pounds and then do a Lionfish fiesta for friends with a variety of presentations from ceviche and tempura to pan fried filets and whole roasted fish.
What do you like about the lionfish community?
I like that it’s environmentally friendly for the most part with a common goal of keeping our ocean as healthy as possible.
