Better than bream. pretty good fried up, though cleaning them is not fun for what you get!

Pigfish are a bit different from grunts. I've never heard of anyone eating pigfish but I'm sure they'll fry up. Now the grunts, especially the bigger ones are good to eat, beside making great grouper bait.

I would keep themfor bait but they are pretty good eating. Before I got a Gulf boat, me and my buddy use to fish in the bay a lot. We would always stay out untill we at least had fish for dinner. One day the fishing was tough and we came across a spot loaded with pigfish. We kept and cleaned 50 of them. Not a lot of meat on them but they tasted good.

If you can kill it- you can grill it! Remember that redfish and lobster used to be the poor man's fare. All pigfish needs is an exotic name change and would become popular! Maybe spotted sea grunt? At least get rid of the pig part. I can see it now- 2 person limit on pigfish and they gotta be 14-16" slot, season is one month out of the year.

Next up- REMORA! The poor man's Cobia.
