Default Re: In Praise of Bluefish

Hi Murphyslaw & 73surffisher and welcome to 247.

The eating quality of any fish, but especially bluefish, has everything to do with what you do with with it after it's caught. Bleeding out is a must, and as acrylic pointed out, it's very easy to do. Burying in wet sand is an old trick that accomplishes 2 things. It keeps your fish fresh, and it keeps the space around from getting crowded, by those who want to muscle in on the fish LOL.

And yes, snappers are probably the best way to get kids interested in fishing. Always ready and willing.

Thanks for your posts guys.
