Ahhh yes, the damned 'ole Leatherjacket. Watch the spikes on the belly! Them suckers ache like crazy if they spine you.

Don't know about eating it (course, anything is edible if you got nothing to eat) but back in Hawaii, my uncle used to dry out the skin of those, shape it and use it in the middle of his trolling lures that he cast in his garage. Home made Kona heads. It had a really nice pearlescent glow to it.

You can eat them, but no one hardly does.
