Spadefish, good to eat. Flesh has a gray color but cooks up white. Small ones really don't yield a lot of meat.

Atlantic Spadefish, they are good eating. Small mouth means smaller hooks.

Yes, Atlantic Spadefish

Excellent eating, only surpassed by Pompano and tied with Flounder for flavor/texture.
I scale and gut, season and cook whole on BBQ or broiler.

One of my favorites for fight too.
Fish for them like you do Bream, rig small hook/bait and a small split shot.
