obviosly you CAN eat them, but do people? do they taste good? anyone here had them?

Ive found a spot that is a VERY short swim from me where there is litereally hundreds of them. Around a foot or longer each. Theyve been there the last 4 times I've looked.

Let me know if they taste good, if so Im going to buy a net! lol

Yes you can and this sounds like a pretty good recipe: http://www.ehow.com/how_2043378_prepare-jack-fish-chipotle-patties.html

Just curious.........is netting legal inside the reef? And what about that license mentioned on another thread??

(of course we've all seen sardines being netted)

I also see people driving golf carts all the time drinking a beer. doesnt mean its legal either.

I believe netting them is not legal as they are a game fish but if there are that many a small jig should catch you a few. No need for a rod, just hand line it. I've caught them on a fly rod and they put up a good fight.
