Pou with a huge jewfish, 1988 in San Pedro
Somebody ran over to Middle street and said "you gotta come take a picture of Pou with this huge "jewfish". Damn near had to back up to Caye Caulker to get the whole thing in there.
I remember when I would stay there until he finished cleaning his big fish and go home late. He was a great fisherman
The Jewfish is also known as Goliath Grouper. The name was changed officially a few years back with the help of The Organization of Christians and Jews.
The story is in the 1800s, jewfish were considered trash fish, and some people declared it was only fit for Jews.
San Pedro had a Jewfish Street name until Mayor Elsa Paz changed it to Goliath Street.
