Cuda tastes great, but anything of any size carries that disease.

Just so we are clear.
If I hook a sailfish, or any other bill fish that is good to eat and legal to keep, and its going to die or is dead.. I am keeping it and eating it end of story. I will deep fry that sumbitch in my turkey frier and eat it and like it.

I will not go out of my way to kill one and I will do my best to release it, BUT if it not going to make it, in the box it goes.

If its aginst the law to have the fish on board he goes over no matter what, and I think that is wrong. I hate to kill something for nothing!

I really think you misread what he was saying and I still think he should have pushed you in the water at the fuel dock just because it would have been funny... and I don't know either of you.
100% agree, this is a responsible approach. Kill a bill fish if you have too. Unless it is a Sword, then always take it (love them sword bone-in ribeyes). Grouper and I agree, even if he does not know how to drive a a Grady properly!

And if your so concerned with the welfare of the sailfish call Steve Irwin and name your boat the Sea Shepard 4 and get out there and protect those bill fish and when your not protecting bill fish you could give lectures and tell the whole world how unethical it is to keep a bill fish or any fish for that matter. And for the record no one cares that your an MD!!!!!!!
To be fair, a Swordfish is way, way harder to catch than a Sail. No comparison at all really.

a dead stick with a dead squid in the bow while i fish for tuna in the stern has produced countless dozens of swords for me..not that hard to catch. but they do taste as good as fish can taste.

now if you can catch sailfish any easier than that you are my hero.

The fish you're referring to we call Skip Jack Tuna down here.. Yes, they are good however most people don't know it.. I've had blackfin right next to skippies on the dinner table and no-1 noticed.. They dont quite compare to YF, but still pretty good none-the-less..

Bonita (Bonito) whatever people tend to call them, they are not edible.. Not to humans anyways.. Make for great bait though!

big bite, what are the biggest dolphin lures you're making right now? everytime i see one of the pics with a big dolphin on a big bite lure, the lures look bigger than the dolphin pack lures i have (and seem to have huge heads/eyes). i want to order some more of your stuff, but looking on the bigger side right now.


-Edwin

p.s. we've eaten some of the bigger triggers, and they're pretty good....

also, maybe its easier to catch swords in costa rica than down here, thats crazy. noone i know here has even caught a sword "by accident" or just by hanging a squid off the bow. i wish!

and to add to the discussion, i'm also curious about how sails taste. we sailfish ALOT and ive been thinking of keeping one one day.

Edwin,

We have a 10'' softhead that has been doing well. You can get info on that here.

Here's a pic of our customer Oliver who made some money in a tournament off of a 10'' soft head just last week:




Also, we have our Bubble Bite lures which have provided great action on tuna, dolphin, and billfish.. Here's info on them: Bubble

For all of you guys who won't eat a billfish thats legal what is your reasoning? Is it because you feel they are endangered? Or do you feel bad because you think they are prettier than the other fish?

No, that pic was from the Miami Springs tourney two weekends ago..

The Grove Slam fish was caught by a different customer-Team Deep Penetration.. Same lure though. See below..


Thanks for your order Edwin. Your shipment will leave immediately.

Steve55: That's perfect.. The dog puking is nice touch...
