Are spade fish good to eat? I caught two really good ones on Saturday and wasn't sure if they were good eatin or not. Seems like I heard they were - all white meat - but wasn't sure.

Skulls - I caught these on frozen shrimp. One right after the other and that was it - guess they were passing through.

I was using fresh shrimp I picked up from joe patties and I had a 1/4oz weight tied about 1ft abovea 1/0 plan shank hook(i didn't needthe weightcause they were on surface) and just watching them pick on my bait then when they ran off with it the fight was on they all ran under the bridge though so keep your drag tight so they don't cut you off.

A rammer jammer yes they are very great eats

Nice! I've had very little luck off the new fishing pier: only catching some white trout which we just use for our pinfish trap in Alabama.
