Default Anybody eat Bluefish?

I have been catching some nice ones lately and I usually throw them back. Fun as hell to catch, remind me of fighting a big bass, but I don't know too much about eating them. My Pops always told me that bluefish was good but he'll eat anything. Anybody eat it? anybody like it?

I've never eaten one. For some reason on the east coast they are considered table fare and here they are considered a "trash" fish. Having said that, I don't have any plans to eat one. Too many other tasty fish around here!

You know why they call the blue fish?

Cause they are sad!

Greasy even fried, but smoked they are good as any oily fish.

I love them, but only fresh. They don't freeze well at all.

They are not bad. I grew up in SC and we ate bluefish alot there, they taste the same here. I noticed most people on the gulf side dont eat blues unless they were born over on the atlantic side then moved here, but I also noticed on the atlantic side they think amberjack is a trash fish. But here in the gulf they eat them. either way I eat them both.

Keep them really cold after you catch them. They are more oily than most and the blood line is stronger than most. Soak in buttermilk batter and fry. Try them and see.
