Default Hardtail

I know that most people use them for bait, but has anyone tried to eat it?

If you gut them and cut the head and gills out. Roll in flour corn starch mix and deep fry till the tail looks like it's going to fall off. mix soy sauce and some lemon. Dip and eattill it's all gone. It is a white meat after all..... Don't knock it till you try it......

only recipe i've heard of.

step 1: fillet fish

step 2: dip fish in cornmeal

step 3: fry fish in vegetable oil in a small skillet

step 4: when fish is golden brown, throw that shit out and eat the skillet.

I think I have seen you eat a chunk of old Bonita we were going to use for bait off of a charter boat a few years ago.

So you say a hardtail is good?
