Where do you buy your fresh fish and what type is best?

Sheepshead spawn in February here. You can go out to the shallow water rigs and fill the boat up...all you need is a 1/4oz. jighead and bait shrimp. Last trip we made, caught over 400 and filled 4 ice chests. Made a big donation to the Saltwater Mafia to feed the needy...

with a jighead, you flip it next to the rig leg and just watch it fall....when it stops falling before it hits bottom, set the hook, fish has got it. If the fish feels tension, he will spit out the hook and you miss him.
South Carolina now has a size limit and a creel limit on Sheepshead. We fish bridge pylons and always scrape the barnacles, fresh shucked oysters or clams is our bait of choice.

To the OP,
Where do you live? Is your choice to find fish only that of at a super market? Do you not have a decent fish market nearby?

Flash frozen most of the time, after reading about tilapia when they started tasting muddy or off I quit buying it. Farm raised catfish is really good around here but not sure where its from. cod gets the nod also
