One snapper from Wednesdays trip to Mokau had milky flesh. Not really bad but noticeable.

for snapper I frequent the Bowentown end of Tauranga harbor. For many years I have avoided snapper fishing December and January because 3 out of 5 will be milky or close to it. From the end of January on a very occasional pale one but that's it.Once march arrives it's fish city and their gut cavities have loads of fat - no whiteys at all. I have consulted all the "experts" I could from both the commercial and recreation worlds - no common consensus. Some say water temp, others say spent (from breeding). Water temp does not add up in my book.
