The big question is it LEGAL? Doesnt matter if a fish is edible or not, check with your state/country if you need a license or not to take as well as making sure its within size regs as there are size limits on game fish generally where im from.

Somebody told me these fish are full of bones and a pain to eat. Thought I'd warn you in case its true. Maybe research a bit now you know the species.
I've never eaten it but I've heard it is really good. Though I have also hear it is quite bony.
