The proper way to dispatch of Bluefish:

Apply boga grip to lower jaw. Remove fly.

Hang fish over side of boat.

Rip flillet knife across gills and cut throat, bleeding the fish.

Immediately ice.

Fillet, cutting out the dark oily bits along lateral line. Soak fillets in whole milk/butter milk in fridge for 1/2 hour.

Pat dry, dip in egg, dust with breadcrumbs and pan fry.

Place fillets on a hamburger roll with lettuce, tomato, tartar and/or hot sauce. Enjoy with an ice cold brewski.
