Did you have the same results with fish you've smoked, very moist?
I've smoked fresh trout DL, and it was moist and delish! I too would want smoked salmon to be dryer and I'm thinking Bolas is on to something there.

Some pics do look like Muskies, which have also been known to nibble people's toes! We frequently caught them in our quest for walleye on Lake of the Woods. Always threw them back, as they were only good eating during certain seasons. Nasty beasties.

I see snoek are exclusive to the southern hemisphere.

It's great hot smoked. It's also good lightly smoked or cured and grilled with lemon butter. The texture is drier than salmon.
And Snook is not the same fish as Snoek

I'll have to dig out my gravlax recipe. It was made with Michigan caught salmon.
