 My misses loves them, for me, I can take them or leave them. Only ever got then spearfishing though, best was a 1kg whopper of Woodmans point. 

Haven't yet tried but been told they do better after freezing, quite a strong taste.

 I speared one of these just before New Years, was fairly big as well topped the scale ruler at 55cm. Was also unsure if you could eat them and in the end just used it for crab bait in my pots
