    The saltwater American Shad is popular in New England for its eggs. Surely skipjack eggs aren't good to eat? I checked my TV guide and I don't see any reruns in the near future for this Bristol Bay Brawl. What's it all about? I didn't realize skipjacks were such a hot commodity until I got on this message board last summer. Many of the steam plants around here aren't generating to capactiy. This cold weather has got some of them back online. Next spring I'm saving every skipjack I can get ahold of. Kingston Steam Plant used to be loaded with them until TVA goofed up and spilled all that fly ash into the lake then shut the plant down. :angry:

    I guess so. There were so folks of some Asian nationality eating raw baby gizzard shad below a dam one day that were 6" to 8" long. At first I thought they were catching them with their cast net for bait until I saw them chomping down. You won't catch me eating at any of the local sushi bars.

    I saw it, amazing how many they catch. I think after they strip the row for that market alot of them will be frozen as bait for crab fisherman and such.....at least I would think so.
