    Jack Mackeral for eating

    Have always been pondering this one as I only ever keep them for bait and bloody good bait it is too but was just wondering how many people on here actually keep them for a feed instead of chucking them in with the pillies in the bait bag. Always been tempted to give them a whirl in the pan or the smoker just to give em a go.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    don't forget to trim of the hard boney bit on the skin, from the tail to mid body.

    I saw it on a cooking program, eaten a few in the UK on the bbq and they were nice i'm been meaning to try them here,

    but my mate loves them for when he goes bait fishing, so i keep a few for him if i get them as a by catch

    I used to say that about mullet always refused to eat it then just after I got together with the missus she took me to her dad and uncles place in kawakawa we arrived there and next thing we got oh good you are in time for dinner, we will be having fish we thought cool no worries then he pulled the mullet out and started deep frying it in dripping and I had to eat it the missus, the uncle and her father were all chowing down on it and I had no choice but to eat it but the dripping that was running off it made me fell crook. For me mullet is still bait after that experience.
