So we accidentally caught a few tilapia today while bass fishing. They were all in the 3 lb range and we kept them rather than toss them on the bank. Funny thing is they hit square bill cranks in shad color as well as spinner baits, go figure.
Anyway, when I filleted them out, I noticed the flesh had a really yellow tint to them. Is this normal? We've only eaten store bought tilapia and liked it so I figured wild caught should be just as good or better. Being these are the first ones I've caught I want to make sure the color of the flesh is right for them before we eat them. They all looked healthy with no weirdness to them.
