Re: Question On Lookdowns

Never speared one but I have caught a lot of them practicing with my 6 weight flyrod around docks at night.
Meat is great.If you keep the bigger ones and just cut back through the forehead and down behind the gills and then gut them you get a fair amount of meat.
I generally caught them waiting for a Snook or Tarpon to show under a light.They are fun on light tackle and helps pass time till the target fish feed.

The Jacks and Spadefish I gave to a Jamaican buddy of mine.When I told him I didnt shoot them he asked me to get him some and he would clean them.On bad days I would load him up a 33 gallon garbage can of jacks,spadefish,grunts and porgies.Grunts and porgies were nice but the other stuff needed smoked and a lot of beer to wash it down.
Seven out of ten women are battered.Im still eating mine plain.
