We did not know about the throats, so sadly we did not get them out. Our guide was sick but did not want to cancel on us so we cleaned the fish for him so he could get home and rest up. JEC brought the fillets home- he'll be sure to make a post about how they cook up. If you know anyone that works at Solutia I think he usually brings them out there to cook them up, so somebody ought to let us know!

they're awesome to catch! great pics.

they hit small crabs and live shrimp under a cork, fished near structure like pilings and gas rigs in Mobile Bay. they're fun, but they'll break you off in nothing-flat.

if you want to get REAL serious about catching them, get a 15' ex-heavy action cane pole, top it with about 15-17' of 50# line, and present a live shrimp to them on it. lol... better hang on, and put on your PFD too!

What a trip, made me want to go, too. My wife caught one years ago in the surf, we did not know what it was at the time so let it go. That one was about six pounds, nothing like your monsters.
