Ha we used to chum the rigs off MS and LA with a little squid get a ton around the chum bag and see how many we could catch In the landing net put right behind the chum bag. Always let em go because we knew how bony they were. 7 was the most in one net.

Saw literally hundreds of them this weekend over the three barges while catching bait. Had one bite the sabaki rig before getting off. Never knew they were edible...

I've caught quite a few spades.. Never knew people ate them. Next time I catch some i'm going to have to give them a try. Are they best fried?

Do you just filet them or cook them whole? I thought i remember hearing about having to cut out the center line all the way down due to the small bones.

Scaled, scored and broiled is how we usually do it, but we have fried them too.
The fillets are pretty small but made great sammiches!

So odd how some fish just aren't known as good fare. When i was young, people threw trigger fish out... except the deck hands that is. Now, they are considered as good as snapper. I personally like them better than snapper.

I always think about this. I remember constantly moving spots because the trigger fish would be to thick to get baits down to the snapper. And now it is illegal to keep one during snapper season.
