i suppose you can but i just use them for bait. but i just found out that if you cut king fish into about 3 inches long and 1 inch wide strips they make great snapper bait. i had to do that after i ran out of bait and didnt wanna go back in so i figured what the heck ill give it a shot and it turned out really well. i caught some nice keeper snapper

For the "Culinay Adventurer".... Pickled Pinfish..You asked for it..LOL.<DIV align=left>Fileting tiny fish like this---skin off---can be tedious. Needless to say, you need a sharp knife and a lot patience that should ultimately prove to be well rewarded. You also need plenty of filets, a couple dozen at the barest minimum assuming a small container. Glass, plastic, even tupperware is fine, as long as it has a tight fitting lid. The other ingredients needed are as follows:</DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left>Kosher salt</DIV><DIV align=left>Dry white wine</DIV><DIV align=left>McCormick pickling spice ground into a very coarse powder</DIV><DIV align=left>Onion slices. </DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left>Sprinkle some kosher salt on the bottom of your container. Add a layer of filets, and sprinkle a bit more salt, some pickling spice, and a few reasonably thin onion slices atop. Next add a second layer of filets and top them similarly. Continue this process until the container is no more than 3/4 full in order to allow space should the absorption of wine cause the fish to expand. Add wine to barely cover. Then cover the container and refrigerate for at least a week, checking occasionally to determine whether more wine should be added to assure the filets remain moist. </DIV><DIV align=left></DIV><DIV align=left>http://uniqueculinaryadventures.blog...d-pinfish.html</DIV>

There is a certain type of pinfish that gets pretty dang large.I caught one offshore once, probably went 1.5 to 2 pounds. He made great bait. AJ thought he was delicious as I recall. He had a black ring around his tail.
