Default smoked gafftop

anyone ever smoke any gafftop? i know you Fl guys smoke fish more over there than we do here. i saw a video of someone smoking mullet and our mullet over here are too muddy. so i was thinking gafftop cause this time of year, they're a nuisance. i've got a pretty nice smoker i built and, well you know. might try to pickle some after a cold smoke too. ate some pickled smoked walleye in N Dakota once and it was good.

Man, sail cat is good fried or baked. Save the smoking for the mackerels and other oily fish... JMHO

Not an oily fish. It'll smoke, but don't think you will like it.

Sailcats have white flaky meat w/ little or no "Fishy" taste. They are just a hassle to clean, a big hassle.

Grandpa would cut out the head for the crucifix, boil it to clean the meat out. Took the boiled water and rest of the fish and buried it next to his palm trees. Great fertalizer. The crucifix was bleached, shellaced and sold to the tourists. Paid for his cigars!
