Nice cafch! I believe they were a reasonably regular catch as far south as Broughton Is back in the 60's but are fairly rare now. Always a welcome addition to our bag up here.
I recall when I filleted it that it had firm white flesh but I rushed preparing the fish for Monday's dinner and had served up some of the fish to my little rug rats (3.5 &1.5) and by the time I got the rest of the kingfish of myself and the missus on the table the boys had polished off the spangled :? So all good there but missed my chance to try it...sbd said:How was it on the plate?
