We brought home some Bluefish from the gulf. Tony said it wasn't good after being froze and needed to be consumed while fresh. I found a recipe for a marinade...orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, olive oil, and a citrus fish rub, and grilled about four pounds of fillets the day after we got home. It was quite tasty, but had some fillets left, and figured I'd do them like a tuna salad. That worked very well...just a suggestion for what one might do if ya need to do something with Bluefish.

Forgot to mention to ya Slick, Bluefish makes excellent fried fish patties too - grind it up and mix in your favorite hush puppy meal, seasonings and fry up like salmon croquets.

Interesting, John. I wondered how those devil fish tasted. Find any teeth in that meat?  We had a fish fry tonight and I tried some RS for the first time. Tasted good. My gosh, those slabs were huge.

Dan, as I remember, I filleted most of those mean fish myself, and was very diligent in the bone and tooth removable. I think I even found a small piece of the end of one of my fingers while cleaning them, which I immediately super glued back in place. The grilled fillets were very good...the citrus marinade added an interesting flavor, and the salad made some nice sandwiches...even did one on toast for breakfast one morning...way better than canned tuna. Nice mild flakey fillets mixed with tuna salad makings very well.

How did you prepare the snapper?

Plain jane fried it. I'm a no frills guy.

BTW - now, every time I go into a sports fishing department, all I ever see is "Road Runners".
Don't know why I never noticed them before now.
Which color / tail did you say you liked best?

Quarter oz. with the chenille tail, white or chartreuse...I buy them by the card, I think that's a dozen. I generally have white, yellow, and chartreuse, but seems the chartreuse works fine when the white doesn't.

Blakemore Bait Company, you can catch anything on a Roadrunner.

I didn't buy any that big. 
I bought the 1/8 oz variety.
Chenille tail? Gotta look that one up. 
i bought White "curly tail", "turbo tail", "crappie thunder", and a chartreuse curly tail.
How well they work on fall WB?
You fish them any particular way?

The more you practice, the luckier you get.

feathery fiber looking stuff, get it wet, and then spread it out with your fingers, gives a better profile and action on the tail. fish em slow. Actually I guess the skirt is marabou, and the body is chenille.
