Default Hardheads

Are they any good for bait for anything?

It's meat, so you can always throw them in the crab traps, that's what I'd do if I have the time. My neighbor is an older fella and he told me as a boy people would eat them way back when but that you need to take their lateral line out or something. Can't remember anything about which cats he was referring to TBH. I know that he turned me onto smoked croaker and fried gar though, and the first time I ate the croaker they were day-old out the fridge... I've been smoking them with pecan ever since.

Here is my answer to fish. Unless it is poisonous do not listen to what anyone tells you about eating them. Catch the fish, cook it a few ways and decide for yourself if you like them. My personal opinion is that if a fish tastes bad it's probably because you suck at cooking. I eat LOTS of fish that people call terrible around here and I know a lot of food snobs that have complimented me on a fish they ate before they knew it was a fish they said they do not like.

Shzzzz ! Don't call them hardheads. They are GOM (Gulf of Mexico) trout. The 3"-5" GOM trout are good for catching Ling. Clip the dorsal fin and put them in bait well.

So pitching around a buoy for cobia would be good bait.

You can bury in the garden for fertilizer, your tomato plants will get 12' tall.

I did that with some big carp last year I shot with my bow, couldnt even walk in the garden barefoot after I tilled it cuz all the sharp bones. I wouldn't want to try hardheads.
