Are spadefish good to eat or not?

I'm not an experienced offshore man so i'm wondering about eating spadefish. I went a couple of weeks ago and the guy i went with was gaffing spadefish off the side of the boat and throwing them in the icechest. He says they are excellent eating. Other people that i have talked to say that they are not good to eat. Are they the offshore hardhead or what?

Are they boney fish? I have heard that they are... I guess if they are that good, they may be worth cleaning.

Fry them, pretty good fresh. Not as difficult to filet as triggers.

I only caught one and threw it back not knowing any better. It wasn't very big, but boy was it strong for its size.

REALLY big ribcage, so you really need a good size one to make it worth while.....but EXCELLENT fish on the table!!! My wife gets kinda upset with me if I don't bring in at least a couple whenever I go offshore . Excellent fried, but also do well on the halfshell on the grill.

The are fairly good tablefare.....many people get spades confused w/ "trigger fish". The trigger meat is much more white.....but the spade is definitely worth frying!
