    I did a search and couldn't find any info, so here goes. Does anybody eat skipjack? I know it is a herring and people eat those.

    I heard a guy saying the other day that he loves them pickled, I think I'll pass on that one.

    I haven't ever but I have told my Dad and others several times that if I ever had to eat a baitfish it would be Skipjack. Think about it, you leave them sittting out in the sun when fishing with them and they don't stink like other fish do if you left them out in the sun. I might just have to try frying me up a mess of Skippy fillets one of these days, lol.

    I've never tried them, but I really think they would be a lot like jack mackerel, and I do eat those occasionally.

    That would be a waste of bait. With one skip you can catch multiple cats which are much better eating

    But skips are much easier to catch. And if you had a good recipe for the fillets, you'd still have the head and guts to use for bait.

    Why would you want to eat such a good catfishing bait, why don't you instead use them for bait, catch a small catfish and eat it ?
