    I've never eaten one, but I've heard of people who smoke them. They're supposed to be kinda oily and fishy otherwise, but if that's your cup 'o' tea...

            I have a fish food guide and it goes from 1=bad to 4=excellent they are 3 same as bass and panfish in the guide. Where I live Mexicans and blacks eat them but Mexicans eat everything they catch they may even eat a boot if they caught it.

                It's not racist just because he said black. Some fisherman are more interested in getting to know the watershed, whereas some people just aren't interested. Fines in California can reach over $1,000, so I want to know everything possible before I put my line in the water. But some of these people don't have licenses. They have weird fishing habits because they never bothered to learn about the ecology. Illegal Mexicans really will eat anything. I've seen them catch rainbow trout, but not know what they are. This is So Cal. Trout are the most abundant species you'll bring to the bank. Is it racist to have an experience? I can only control what I do, but don't shoot the messenger.
