If they do, are they hard to remove? I've heard they are but i'm not 100% sure...

Porgies have a good number of bones. I usually remove the bones while I'm eating the Porgies.

Are they like pin bones?

Pretty much like pin bones i guess. Ya ever eat a bluegill? Supersize it and you pretty much have a porgy. I only keep ones that are 14" or so and fillet them. They are an awesome tasting fish.

The only thing better than porgies is porgies and onions.

So you'd remove by plucking them out with tweezers or pliers just like any other fish?

Just remove them with your hands...



It doesn't matter when you remove them also.

Chop off the head, gut it, and scale it then cook it however and pick away bones. That is what I do.

So, when you do this method for fish, do you eat the skin and meat to the backbone, then flip it over and eat to the other side to the backbone?

They have a single skeleton of bones plus the side fins and the top retractable fin...Cut those with shears...Scale,cut the head off,and gut the smaller ones and fillet the humpbacks...
The porgy is the first fish I ever caught on my own,(fishing without my old man),and the first fish I ever cleaned and ate...Me and my friends would cook porgies outside hobo style,with coat hangers or a fridge grate when we were barely teenagers...

Man this brings back some nice memories...

Porgies are pretty easy to clean actually.

Fillet em like any other fish. Just use a thin knife to cut the strip of bone out the middle.
