    Jacks are good, once again, remove the red meat along the lateral line. I mainly use it in curry and the wife and kids love it.
    Guess I will have to try the next large pinfish I catch!

    Haywire, What's an encyclopedia???

    I've personally tried and enjoyed most species caught off the pier including hardtails, stingray(one of my favs), black drum, and spadefish. Like everyone previously said, the prep is the key with most species.

    My co-worker lives on the Pascagula river, he HATES sheepies(because he doesn't like skinning them) catches them off his porch on a daily basis and gives them to the neighbors.

    I have a friend who catches hardheads and fries them without skinning - gut, cut off head, batter and in the grease. Claims they're great. I've never tried one.

    Sheepshead are very good.
