While spearfishing the other day we had a fat school of Speedos (mackerel or redtail scad) swirling around our chum block the whole time. They were about 12" long, looked thick and meaty and I couldn't help wondering how they taste. So I caught two, bled them immediately, and filet them and removed bloodline. They were **** near all meat with no pin bones or anything minus the spine and rib cage and the meat looked like mackerel meat. Turned some into a scad poké bowl...excellent. Tried pickling some like herring...average. Pan fried some in butter with garlic powder, salt, and pepper...whatever the ranking above excellent is. I was so shocked by how good this bait fish tasted. I highly suggest you try it. If you find yourself skunked with a livewell full of speedos, you won't be disappointed.
