    Never got the obsession for these while I lived in the NE. Sure they pull hard for their size but they don't get big and they taste awful.

    I think the obsession is the fight on light tackle and they eat flies easily. Further you go south and offshore they do get bigger. I do agree not great table fare. A friend cut some up for sashimi this summer and people seemed to like it. I don't eat a lot of fish so it wasn't for me i would rather have a burger.

    I recall them as Bonito from back when I lived in Jersey. Nice little foamer of fish there though.

    Bonito are greener and are good to eat. These are called false albacore albies and even bones and not in the tuna family... actually mackerel.

    Some say if you bleed and ice a false alibe right away they taste good, still not for me...They are a blast on light tackle and fly, mostly catch and release when we fish them but always throw a few in the bait freezer for shark fishing.
