Default Ladyfish in Big Lagoon

I caught 4 last night on the western edge near Oysters restaurant. They were all about 1.5-3# range. Had several grab my bone colored spook but throw during the fight.

Are Ladyfish edible or just cutbait for sharks?

Edible?... Yes. Enjoyable? Book say better bait than food. I guess it would depend on how hungry one might be. Fun to catch sometimes but much rather a red or trout jump my hook. Could be wrong. Been wrong before.

Cool, I am glad I didn't keep any. They were fun for the fight and at 11:30 pm I wasn't really there for anything but fun anyway.

A buddy said they are like candy for sharks. Take em home, freeze em, then use them later if you want to target shark.

If you catch a mess of them and scrape the meat out, they make damn good fish cakes. Any cajun will have a good recipe.

LMAO I had my palm read last week and she told me if I ate the head off a fresh caught ladyfish my catch ratio would increase by 10x. The taste wasn't half bad and I can't seem to keep the fish off my hook now!
