War Damn Eagle
Big difference in Atlantic AJ's and Gulf AJ's when it comes to taste and the amount of worms in the meat.They are not bad. I grew up in SC and we ate bluefish alot there, they taste the same here. I noticed most people on the gulf side dont eat blues unless they were born over on the atlantic side then moved here, but I also noticed on the atlantic side they think amberjack is a trash fish. But here in the gulf they eat them. either way I eat them both.
Some have worms. They are the same as here. I have caught more really wormy ones in SC than here, Guess thats how they got the bad name there. I was fishing in charleston last month and threw down on some AJs they were the same as here, sorry you got some with alot of worms. Just like this weekend im going to limit out on AJs here and there going to taste the same. But the bluefish here or in SC, i have never had any worms and still taste the same to me. its all on how you cook it. just get that blood line out.Big difference in Atlantic AJ's and Gulf AJ's when it comes to taste and the amount of worms in the meat.
I spent two years in SC and I wondered why everyone didn't eat the AJ's. I found out when I brought a few home one time. Slap full of worms and the taste was horrible. Not sure why the difference. They look exactly the same to me. But taste is definately different.
I've seen guys in LA eat carp balls, so ya'll can't say much about bluefish.Don't anyone ever make fun of us here in Louisiana about the stuff we eat! I am sorry, but you can take bluefish and soak it in milk, vinegar, clorox, or whatever. Then you can fry it, bake it, burn it, again--whatever. It is still horrible compared to trout, reds, catfish, even spanish mackerel. Some of you guys must really be hungry!!
