Albies...does anyone eat them?
I know we all support conservation, catch & release, & Albies are treasured for their fight. That being said, I assume that someone has tried to eat one at one time or another. I think that their relatives are tunas &/or mackeral...both can be deleicious & or strong/oily/bloody, etc... They look similar to Bonita, which I have heard mixed reviews about. Some say they are stronger, bloodier & oiler then bluefish. Others say if they are bled, iced & eaten same day they are good on the grill (Bonita that is). Same w/Albies or no? Not that I ever caught one, or even targeted them, hell I don't even know if it is leagal to keep them. Just wondering incase I ever bumbed into a mess of them trying to commit suicide on my line & I was jonesin for a fish dinner.
