Spot fish roam the coastal waters of the North Atlantic, most commonly found in the Chesapeake Bay through to South Carolina. A hyper local delicacy in Virginia and the Carolinas with a light to moderate flavor, a small flake, and sweet notes. Spot are typically on the smaller end, with retail sizes of 1-3 pounds. Due to their small size, spot are almost exclusively sold whole, dressed, or gilled and gutted. Fantastic for pan frying whole, and work well for retail displays and restaurants alike.
Sam Rust partners with a number of local organizations as a way to give back to the community that supports us. We recognize the importance of supporting causes right here in Virginia, and take great care to source as much of our seafood from local boats and fishermen as possible.
