    Re: Damn they're tasty

    I've had them the wrong way several times, and I've had the pleasure of tasting them brined and smoked. Delish!

    Re: Damn they're tasty

    On a beautiful rainy day right now I decided to watch the video of how to filet shad. The technique was captivating to watch but it would probably take me all day to process one fish. Shad are great fun to catch and I would be happy to pay someone else to filet them. Unless properly prepared the results after cooking are far less than desirable. I know from personal experience.

    Anyone got a good smoking recipe or do you just gut ‘em and toss ‘em over some mesquite or something?

    Sounds like I have to give it a try I've talked to a couple guys who said use a pressure cooker to make the bones soft.

    Learn to debone them and smoke them. Easily as good as salmon, if not better. I know...sacrilege, but based on my last batch, totally true.

    Taking off and flying is easy, it's the landings that will kill you.

    For shad I like the cedar plank method. Heavily season the fish cook it for 10 minutes on each side when its done throw the fish away and eat the wood.
