That's a big fish, but boy is it ugly

Wadda mean it struck beautifully it fought beautifully and out of the water it posed beautifully :chuckle:

How did it taste? I used to throw those things back because they were such a pain to clean. Now that I have learned the quick and dirty way of dressing them out, I'll keep every one I can get my hands on.:chuckle:

Anything over 24" has to go back

He probably would not fit in the normal sized wok anyway.:razz:

BTW: in the future, just gut them and cut each side with a series of vertical slashes between the ribs. (like on the fish below) :D Do not remove the head, the tail, the fins, the skin, nothing! Just deep fry the whole thing. Easy!
