I know all you saltwater guys will hate to see a lionfish going under the knife, but since they are all over Florida's water now which is bad for our Eco- system. We have been catching them on boats & fishing bridges which is no good. Everyone that has tried lionfish, loves eating them.
There taking over and destroying our reefs... If you take there poisonous spines and snip them off and bake them at 350 degrees f it denatures the poison and you can use them as toothpicks and skewers for bacon wrapped lionfish chunks.

They have no predators but I have friends that say that once there dead goliath groupers will eat them. that's why I want to get a lionfish catch kit for when ii m out diving and bring them home to eat.

Mutton Snapper eats Lionfish - YouTube

Just to give you an idea how big these muttons can get. This is just a 14lb I caught in the Keys DT. The biggest one caught within our friends and fishing buds we know is 27-29lb
