    I have never heard of anyone eating one of those ever, oddly enough. Heard of people eating ratfish, , even heard a guy who had tried to eat a mola.. never a midshipman though, lol

    This kind!

    Seriously I'd eat ceviche 'til I pass out...and when I wake up, I'll eat some more. And if I did that more often, I wouldn't even BE a fat ### anymore.

    There going to be considered “not common” if you don’t know where and how to catch them. I mean they’re not as abundant as spotties and stingrays, but there are quite a few out there. Especially in recent years. Also corvina are fairly fragile fish, so if you hook them in the wrong place they die real easily. I’ve had to keep a few just because of that reason. Also corvina is one of the best tasting fish out there. I don’t have an issue with people keeping them.

    Tmaio123 I'd say their just as common as spotties. They just don't school up in big schools like spotties do. Only a few spots where they school up by the hundreds. Most everywhere else it's just wolf packs with 3-5 fish. The older and bigger they get the more solitary they get. Those 28" and bigger fish tend to always be lone wolves.

    Of course of course. I'm gonna take a step back with my earlier words - I didn't mean to attack the people who started this post or make some statement like "Corvina shouldn't be kept at all."
    Our bay fisheries are not huge. I just worry for a species like corvina with no regulations surrounding them the potential for their numbers to decrease. I mean there are so many examples of realllly common fish species and other animal species becoming rare or even going extinct. Not saying this will happen but I just think that people should maybe have some awareness. Of course there are some times when you hook a corvina, especially with treble hook baits, where they are not gonna survive. They're definitely fragile fish, but like trout, if you are careful with how you treat them and not flipping them onto shore or docks, etc, they'll mostly be okay.

    There are a few spots in the bays where the corvina fishing can be wide open - mostly smaller fish, but still, great numbers can be caught. I worry that someone (if they wanted to) could keep 20, 30, maybe 50 fish in a night.

    No hard feelings towards anyone on this forum or post. Just my thoughts.

    Tight lines

    JeremyFWright .. any guy who has caught 50 in a night and "released" them all has killed more corvina than any angler who has taken a legal ten limit. What I have seen of it is a whole different thing to what I see the corvina hunters saying online anywhere. Guys taking three times the legal limit are a different problem, that is poaching, or commercial fishing, depending on if it is sold or not.. either way, illegal as hell, dispicable and punishable by law. I do not target corvs for the simple reason I don't prefer to eat them, and returning them to the water is problematic...

    No worries man I understand how you are concerned with the fish populations. And don’t be concerned with people being offended on here. Most of us aren’t delicate flowers that take things super personally. And if I caught even 5 Corvina in one night, I’d be stoked. Even though they aren’t that rare, it isn’t very common to catch a large quantity of corvina. You gotta be at the right place at the right time. For the most part, they are a fish that are always on the move! Also not that many people are specifically targeting corvina. Most of the time people catch them when fishing hard baits for spotties and halibut. It’s very rare that I’ve met someone at the bay who is specifically going for vinas. In fact the majority of people I find fishing the bays are either fishing soft plastics for spotties or frozen bait for whatever bites. That’s what I’ve observed at least.

    You would be tried and convicted, then burned at the stake. Don’t do it man, that’s a serious crime now days !

    My friend posted it once and regretted, people talking crap left and right blowing up his dm’s and this guy is 99.9% of the time is catch and release so it wasn’t like a daily thing or monthly thing but a once a blue moon situation so prepare to be a victim of a witch burning lol

    The midship season is starting up. If anyone wants to try one let me know. People in Korea like them.

    That’s a shame.. we ate all basses and sculpin, and anything else we could make fish sticks out of, back in the 80s-90s. Spot bass are very good eating. Bays are overloaded with the little vermin to be honest and they are firm white meat. I just dont get all the nay say... actually, most other fish are mushy compared to spot bass. People say they are “tough”. Ya, a London broil is tough... spot bass is nice and firm, and not mushy like Corbina. I haven’t eaten a spot bass in years, but I did just eat a pan fried corbina recently, and was pretty disappointed to be honest. Anyway, let the crucifiction begin, I’ve eaten all of it, and let me tell you, spot bass ain’t the worst of it..
