A captain once chewed me out when I told the person who had chartered the boat, that "Sand Bass are not the best-tasting fish, toss it back" "Who are you to tell someone what tastes good and what doesn't. If they want to keep it and eat it, let them be. They caught it, and that's what they came out to do. To each his own."It's crazy shit that somebody would be holding 6 of those things for a picture.Is he going to eat that crap ?
I have eaten Cuda a few times. It's one of those fish that you need to take care of right away (bleed, ice and filet, refrigerate) and eat fresh. Battered IMO was best but seasoned and grilled was also ok. But then again, I'm kind of like that will all my fish. Ice it, clean it asap, and eat it fresh. Halibut is about the only fish I can still enjoy after it's been frozen for more than a week.
