A little off topic, but now that I've finally cooked and eaten bluefish, I can say that it's absolutely delicious. I had three frozen blues in the freezer that asianfisher (aka Billy) gave to me. They were already beheaded and cleaned. I finally defrosted them in the refrigerator the other day and grilled the largest one for lunch yesterday. I scored it, salted it and threw it on a smoking hot grill for 4-1/2 minutes per side:



It tasted like a mild mackerel, which I also like grilled. You can get mackerel grilled over charcoal in some Japanese restaurants. They call it saba. Bluefish has the same oily fish taste as mackerel, although it's milder. When I grilled the two smaller ones for dinner, I found that they were even milder tasting than the slightly larger one.

Yeah, the bigger they get the oilier they are from eating all that bunker! They are very fun to play with on the line also! I cant wait to hook into a much bugger one and really test out my drag n my new Fin Nor reel.

Went here and West Haven today and did terrible. 1 Sea Robin and one small Fluke. Im going back to Gulf Beach at 2 am to see if the Stripers are coming in yet and then Ill slide over to the pier later morning for blues. Hopefully the fish cooperate a little more. The freaking crabs were killing me today!
