We always considered it a trash fish when I lived in Florida but I'm not sure if people eat them or not

Consider them trash fish as well but have ate them a couple times on camping trips, not very good even when camping IMO

Was fishing lake Fork with a buddy quite a while back, caught about a 3.lb no clue what is was? There was a fishing guide in another boat real close that pulled up next to us and he told me that it was a Grinnel and they were great eating scratch He said put them between two cedar planks, smoke them for two hours then throw the fish away and eat the planks laugh

My vote for the hardest fighting fish in freshwater. I caught one in a creek once that was about 32" long and weighed over 13 pounds. I'd walk past 3 pound bass to catch one of those. They will eat anything you throw at them as long as it is right in front of them and slow.

They are quite a handsome fish when they are in clear water and about to spawn. They will develop a spot on their tails, like a redfish, and have a bright green hue to their scales.

Caught a bunch of them down in Florida, find a short section of clear bank and get ready.

Hard fighting sons of guns for sure. Lots of fun on light tackle. We catch them in the bayou behind the house with fair regularity. Great challenge for the 5 year old.

Agreed on above, they can be a real pretty fish when they are colored and spotted up.
