2 Sea Beasts, One is Blue and Edible!

Posted on 07 July 2016


What an awesome SeaBeast, no cares and no worries as it glides past the boat like some foreign life form. But like a rose with thorns, these jellies are on the warpath at a microscopic level.

The Bluefish in this video were in town to play, i tell you they were everywhere, all tearing things apart with their scissor-like jaws.

These little seabeasts have a gnarly fight for their size, they just don't back down. We were catching them with silver topwater super spooks left and right in Stuart & Palm City Florida. The whole BRINY team was proud to rock our new line of kick ass fishing shirts


You know a lot of people don't eat these, but the nutritional value of bluefish is excellent. This species has a very high concentration of B12, and bluefish are packed a pretty awesome lineup of vitamins and minerals. In terms of the cooking, Bluefish has the reputation for being tricky, however I have made some excellent dishes from freshly caught Bluefish that are Vietnamese style. It seams the Vietnamese way of cooking these adds a little sweetness to the flesh which soaks up the sauce like a sponge. 

The key is getting your sauces right, like fish sauce, ground fresh ginger, brown sugar, and my personal favorite Bluefish Garnish... fresh scallions! and if you like a little kick some fresh slices of jalapeno is the way to go.
