    Default Brine then smoke

    Just wanted to agree with the initial poster. Blues aren't my favorite mainly cuz I could never do anything with them to make em taste good. Last year however a buddy of mine tried a recipe where you let the fillets soak in a brine solution for a day and then smoke them. It really firmed up the meat and they come out tasting incredible. We've since tried a couple of other species (Croakers and Stripers) but the blues actually turn out much better with this process.

    Default Thanks Gents'

    Awesome respones special d, bbobearbug, racn35, thanks for the inside info, like I said earlier I have had success with both gotchas and spoons, but getting current advice on the fish's preference allways rock's. I have limited out from shore, bridges and piers, but mostly in OBX, bought a boat a few years back and wanna stop havin to drag it allll the way down there just to get my fish on! But this board is really improving my family and I's catch ratio in the Bay. Lynnhaven sounds like a plan, and it tends to be a lot more small boat freindly, than rollin out in the bay. heres a few pics of some monsters that blitz the surf in the buxton area, they were real thick last spring. Great smoked never tried the brine method though can't wait, did try milk one time, and it sucked all the bluefish flavor out! was like eatin 8lb fish stick, Thanks agian!!!

    VMRC called them Taylor - I don't know why...yet.

    EDIT: From Wikipedia (which is not always accurate) notice "...called tailor in Australia,...

    Bluefish
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    For the text editor, see Bluefish (text editor).
    The bluefish (Pomatomus saltatrix ), called tailor in Australia,[1] is a species of popular marine game-fish found in all climates. It is the sole species of the Pomatomidae family.

    If you type "tailor bluefish" in Google it says do you mean "taylor bluefish".

    I googled "smaller bluefish" and the first hit came up "Snapper" Bluefish. I've heard them referred to as "Cocktail" Blues also. I'd rather eat BSB and Flounder.
