Default Anglers Trash Sushi Grade Tuna

I am wondering if anglers in the Panhandle eat Little Tunny Bonito?

I was involved in a debate on the Scubaboard and half the guys think it's trash. They are all talking about this story http://www.floridagofishing.com/news...rade-tuna.html

Are you guys catching the Little Tunny's this summer in the Panhandle? They are running right now on the east coast.

I would never eat it. Would never consider it even remotely close to sushi grade. Although I think blackfin is really good, just stepping up from blackfin to yellowfin is a considerable difference. I would consider little tunny to be considerably lower than blackfin.

Maybe other people think differently?

A friend of mine ate some once and said it was OK at best. He also marinated the living crap out of it and then seasoned the living crap out of it also. Personally if olive oil, salt, and pepper don't take care of it then it doesn't need to be eaten. I will blacken, fry, or marinate sometimes but my baseline is set at olive oil, salt, and pepper.

i'm sure you can eat little tiny/ false albacore/ bonita. from what i've heard it's pretty bad (rather squishy and oily) I've eaten atlantic bonito but thats a different fish.

If they were sushi grade then there wouldn't be as many as there are.

I've eaten it with olive oil, salt, pepper and a little lemon. It's not as bad as most people claim, IMO. Wasn't horrible, but it makes a lot better strips. I have 4 or 5 in my freezer right now. They aren't bad, but they can catch tastier fish.

Try making Tuna Salad or Tuna Dip out of it. Trim it really close, boil it in crab boil, then flake it, add Mayo, Sweet Pickles, Onion and Liquid Smoke. For Dip leave off the pickles and run it thru the food processor, takes a little more Mayo than salad.

Beats canned Tuna, falls short of all the other Tunas out there.

You guys talking about regular standard bonito? Or a different kind?
