last march i was down at clammin franks for a few day of fishing,seeing the area and frank and i are practicing our distant running. He also taught me how to drink a large manatten. A couple days i think it was 2 large.
we trolled just outside a pass and got a bunch of spanish mack's a sm blue a jack and a ladyfish. Went out the pass another and anchored about 30 to 40' and casted to almost the sand and caught a load of southern kingfish.
frank said thelady was no good to eat. His wife fried us up a great meal and i tried the ladyfish. It was a super soft almmost mushy and wasn't terrible but i tried . It is a great fighter and a pretty fish.
Just to expound a little further, Jack didn't even finish the ladyfish! Way too boney and soft. Too many other delectibles from the sea to even screw with them. Fun to catch and grouper like them chunked. The local bald eagles love them. Kudos to Jack for trying them. My wife did balk about roasting up a possum that he brought with him from NC or SC or GA! And we do like broiled Spanish Macs!
