This Weekend's Catch for 8/7/09 - 8/9/09

First, let me just say that I apologize for the delay in listing this weekend's catch! I went to a cookout and ended up staying for longer than I had anticipated, and I wasn't able to write this post from my iPhone. So sorry!! 

Here is a listing of all we have to offer at Jumbo Seafood for the weekend 8/7/09 - 8/9/09. ALL of our seafood is FRESHWILD-CAUGHT, and NOT IMPORTED

  1. 10/15 ct. Tails (Apalachicola, Florida) 
  2. 16/20 ct. Tails (Apalachicola, Florida) 
  3. 31-35 ct.  Tails (Apalachicola, Florida) 
  4. 21/25 ct. Head-On (North Carolina) 
  •  The numbers before the shrimp indicate the average number of shrimp that come in one pound. For instance, in the 21-25 ct. ("count") shrimp, there are 21 - 25 shrimp in a single pound. 
  •  The locations of where the shrimp were caught are listed in parentheses. 
  • We sell shrimp both WITH and WITHOUT the heads. "Head-On" refers to the shrimp with the heads. "Tails" refers to the shrimp without the heads. Generally speaking,  the shrimp without heads are more expensive. 
  1. Icelandic Salmon 
  2. Halibut Fillets (Alaska) 
  3. Swordfish (North Carolina)  
  4. Flounder Fillets (North Carolina)
  5. Cod (Massachusetts) 
  • All of our fish is fresh, never frozen. 
  1. 10-20 ct. non-processed Sea Scallops (Massachusetts) 
  • "non-processed" simply means that our scallops (unlike most scallops found in the grocery stores) have never been soaked in any preservatives or chemicals such as sodium sulfites or triglycerides. 
  1. Jumbo Lump Crabmeat (Alabama) 
  2. Lump Crabmeat (Alabama) 
  • All of our crabmeat is fresh, non-pasteurized, hand-picked, blue crab.
  • All of our crabmeat is from Alabama. We do not sell imported crabmeat. 
  1. Select Oysters in the Pint Jar (Rose Bay Oyster Company, North Carolina) 
Soft Shell Crabs 
  1. Soft Shell Crabs - "Whales" - the largest in the industry. 
  • The soft shell crabs have been cleaned (face and lungs removed)

Hard Shell Crabs 
  1. This weekend we have a LIMITED SUPPLY of steamed hard shell crabs for sale ON SATURDAY. We're selling them by the dozen or the half dozen and they're beautiful JUMBO MALES out of North Carolina and Louisiana.  
And there you have it! See you tomorrow, and remember - if you want fish, come as early as possible or CALL US at (304) 728-0930! Thanks!

Ali and Les,
I think the mushroom you found was the two-colored Bolete.
It's scientific name is Boletus bicolor. It's edibility is "choice" according to my field guide, but I sure wouldn't eat it without an expert evaluation.
The problem is that there is a similar species -- B. sensibilis -- the looks a lot like the bicolor and is reportedly poisonous.
My source is the The Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms.
