Commonly called by their commercial name “Scup”, porgies are great fun to catch with their lightning fast nibbling bites. The captain takes you to the right spot, put a piece of clam on the hook, drop it down and Bam! You got one, sometime two at a time. Kids love catching porgies as do adults. Its fun and easy and they are great eating.
A huge misconception is that Porgies have a lot of bones. This is not true as they have the same as most any fish. After the mate filets your catch of Porgies you have a nice big bag of sweet white meat with no bones at all. Great to fry, sauté or lightly grill. Of course should you like them the classic Mediterranean style and cook them whole on the grill or fried, the mate will remove all the guts and gills making them ready to cook.
