Fishing for Porgy's is great fun. Love to take the neighborhood kids fishing for Porgy's
I eat Porgy's. They are a tasty fish. Not as good as fluke, but much better than bluefish, IMHO.
I think you will get more enjoyment out of them if you Only keep the BIG ones. Small ones are not worth the effort.
I filleted and take off the skin. You should also feel for the small bones and pull them out with a needle nose or cut them out. You will need a SHARP knife as they have tough scales.
