Cut them in half and put them in a crab trap, do the same with pin fish. I think they are over populated. If you get a good size pin fish eat it, they are preety good.

No so fast on the pinfish deal. :nonono

A youngster we were fishing with caught a monster pin the other day. Almost 2 lbs!

We fried it up with the sheepshead and mullet --- an everyone agreed it was the best!!

I tried frying some hardheads once but I don't like it..the fillets were real bloody. but they make good crab bait. just remember to cut their fins off cause they will get stuck in the bait holder when u try to shake em out

Live hardheads make great cobia bait. Cobes can't resist them. Snip the fins off though so they don't swim straight down when you throw it in front of one.

I am new to the salt fishing and will try anything at least once so.. I got a nice cat about 2 weeks ago and decided I was gonna cook one up... Well the only neg thing I can say is that they are a pain to clean but the filets I got were really very good... I cut him in filets and then rolled in italian bread crumbs and pan fried him. the meat has a constancy like chicken. Very good flavor and I would keep a big one if I caught one. I also tried a Bonita (cooked the same way) and thought it wasent too bad either.... seriously you should try one some time...

Ok... the hard head cat & pinfish stuff was interesting. But frying up lady fish orbonito -->>> OMG. Nextpost will express the attributes ofgrilling hard tails and jack cavaleia.

However, I will say that a sail top cat is equal to any fresh water cat (including flat heads). Back in the 60's it was on the menu of the few resturants in Foley / Gulf Shores. (Note: back then OBA was a small green sign just past 161 on canal road.)

Tip - One must trim the filet for all white meat. Fried or blackend is excellent.
