I know what you mean I found skipjack and bonitos to be good sashimi or poke, even though others bashed it, but better than yellowtail Ali ......lolDude. Don't beleive the hype. EVERY fish you eat ESPECIALLY rockfish have worms. Big Boccaio do have more worms than most around the belly, but just cut that part out. If you are afraid of worms, dont ever eat a local halibut. They are loaded and will actually come crawling out of your fillets. It's a shame to waste a nice big fish because your "buddy" told you they are gross or have worms. IF you're gonna kill it, eat it.
They do not. I'll cook them up side by side and it's almost impossible to tell the difference. They just have gotten a bad rap over the years from guys that don't know better. These are the same people that will tell you Bonita is a trash fish. Bonita is amazing. I like it better than local yellowtail, all day. Be open minded and you'll find a lot of delicious fish that people give a bad wrap.
