In cold water they're as good as spotted cats. I picked up a hoop net Saturday that had 39. You bet ur azz I kept them. Cleaned/fillets some, gave most away. They're not greasy. When you skin 'em they look ugly as shite. A lot of red. Let them soak in water in fridge. They'll be white as spots.
I kept some smaller ones to freeze for crab bait but there were some 2-3 lbers in there.
