Andy...that Black Drum is FINE eatin'! I'm thinkin' 'bout takin' the Wife to go catch some Gar this weekend, if the other fishin' allows it.
PJM, "we" call Bowfin, "Choupic" or "Choupique"...(shoo-pick). They're definitely fun to catch, but I was raised "on the notion of"...the more You chew it, the bigger it gets...so I've never eaten one. And talk about tear up a lure!
