I caught this on a recent fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico. The first mate of the boat laughed at me when I told him I was going to filet it and take it home. “No one eats these fish, they are not even good bate fish”, he said. Well, if I take a fish out of the water then I am going to eat it. Some research has been done, and more needs to be finished. I know this fish is a part of the Jack family, a stunningly good family of fish when fresh and cooked right. So more to come about this elusive and seemingly useless fish!
