Spring Bluefish Recipes

Bluefish begin to show up on the piers and shores of the Carolinas in March. They are an aggressive and feisty fish who love to hit bloody cut bait or flashy artificial lures.

Bluefish of all sizes can be caught by fishermen on Gotcha-style pencil plugs with red headed models being the most popular, as well as cut bait fished on the bottom or live baitfish. Bluefish have a somewhat poor reputation in the south as table fare because folks try to fry them up in oil. Cooked properly, however, they are a very good tasting fish with a nice distinctive flavor.
