    Trying for Old Drum at Bogue Banks yesterday; cutting up fresh Mullet strips for bait. Stainless blade in a plastic handle are perfect for saltwater environments. Mullet have tough skin and heavy scales - the sharp blade cuts through them like butter. OH

    OH
    Do you keep any mullet for supper in the event you don't catch any drum, stripers or blues? :)

    That might not be a good idea if you bought it as bait as you don't know how well it was taken care of since it was intended for bait and not human consumption.
    On the other hand, if he caught'em and kept in properly, sure why not. Some of the best shrimp I ever had were fresh live bait after a bad day fishing.

    Back when I lived in Missouri, my favorite live bait was crawdads, fresh from the bait shop.
    Once or thrice after getting the "bait" I decided "the heck with it. The fish (or snapping turtles) ain't going to bite today anyway" or "WTF! Why should I give the catfish (or snapping turtles) something this yummy?!?" and just went home from the bait shop, cooked the crawdads and ate them myself. :)
    Of course that does not include the numerous times I bought crawdads with no intentions of going fishing ... :)

    I have never eaten a leftover bait fish, but years ago we used to eat BBQ Mullet - split open (butterfly style) and grilled over coals. OH

    Stupid question time-
    Does the Smokejumper have nested steel liners? Or is the knife relying on the FRN for strength?

    Had to look at mine and there are no steel liners, but the FRN is very strong with virtually no flex.

    Screw it. I had to. Smoke Jumper ordered... at under $40 delivered for a lightweight knife in CPM154, made in USA, i just couldn't hold out any longer. It's an insane deal.

    Yeah I can't wrap my head around this pricing. I'm thinking about ordering another. I thought they were sold out by now. Should have stayed away from this thread. The price to performance ratio is ridiculous though.

    Steve from SK wrote to me this afternoon. As of when I ordered one, there were 22 left. If you want one, now's the time.

    The price/materials ratio certainly is. Performance, I'll see in a few days when it gets here.
