I don't get it! I just defrosted the freeze. I found a gal bag of them. In hope they will make good bug bait! I never liked the really soft texture! My sister won't even take any from me and she likes cuda!

I'll take them off your hands .. just kidding. Dont eat those, gotta eat them fresh. Slight panko batter, fry till golden brown.. yum yum. I can eat like a thousand of those. The fins and tail are also very good, as long as they are crunchy.

I need to find some spots in SD for them, still new to this area. But I was going to visit some fam up north and haul the boat. I use to fish for them a lot at the rigs and they are NOT always there. There is a season where they are super duper thick.

They are always there just not in the same numbers. Less now that the Tradition is on them all winter long and taking a couple thousand every day.

Time to find new spots, shouldn't be hard...

The best spot for big sand dab is in Santa Monica bay. Sorry I can't tell you the exact spot. Anywhere from Pv to Malibu around 300ft. Good luck
