The Latilinae sub family would have the Blueline's and Golden's in it and as typically be caught in much much deeper water. Haven't eaten any Golden's yet but I have had Blueline's a couple times and it was excellent. We are going to give it whirl and deep drop out of Hatteras a a few times this summer to see what happens.
Exactly! Bluelines are good, but the Goldens are definitely my favorite. I think they taste better than the Snowys and that was my favorite fish for a long time.
