Default Silver Fish

Just wondering if anyone is catching any silverfish or seen any over in Pensacola? (Other than Joe Pattis)

I know the only silver fish I catch for bait are the mojarra fish.

I've been catching alot more of these in bayous in grassy areas with my cast net.

Some of the best baits around IMO. Redfish absolutely love them, they last longer in the livewell then menhaden, they don't jump out like mullet, easier to handle than pinners, and they cost less than shrimp.

We just call em white baits

Thanks for the replys, should have been clearer. Also called Ribbonfish, cutlass fish. Usually catch them along 3 mile bridge. Long silver fish with a good set of teeth that comes into the bay when it gets cold. Used here as bait for King Mackerel but I like the taste.

Ribbonfish I know!

We used the Williamson trolling ribbon fish to catch the families PB King Mack a few years ago. Would have swore it was a wahoo by the size and the fight

Never thought about eating em!

Meat on them is pretty looking, but life is too short to eat a fish that ugly.

Ah ha...it is actually a Largehead Hairtail. Eaten all over the world, one of the most important food fish caught.

I don't care. I am STILL not going to eat something that ugly.
