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

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)

good question, and yeah ive seen sardines being netted. doesnt mean its legal.

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

either way Id like to know the laws

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.
