Me and the missus went fishing in Oyster Bay yesterday to spend the beautiful day outdoors and to test out a new Fluke pole I had just purchased. We went to the NYS pier at the west end of Roosevelt Park and discovered that everyone there was catching porgies and snappers so we set up our other 2 poles for snappers and were busy all day. We must have caught about 3 dozen each, most of which I threw back because they were just way too small. However, we kept our limit of 10 ranging from 8 - 10". (Gonna be some good fishing in a few weeks, can't wait...)
Since they are fairly small, what would be the best way to get the most out of them and truly enjoy them to their fullest?
PS: I have gutted, de-finned and de-gilled them leaving their heads attached.
