Schecky, I find that the King Wrasse are pretty good eating if you get into them straight away. Leavethe skin on and fry the fillets up in butter after dusting them in som eseaoned flour. They are pretty good like this but dont even try to freeze them.

I agree that they are also bloody good bait out deep.
