I don't think I've ever eaten a blowfish.  Was always told they're poisonous if you clean em wrong.  So thats a chance we were never willing to take.  

 

Couple summers ago we caught a bunch of babies in the seine. Bout the size of my pinkie nail.  They just floated around like lil bubbles til one by one they went under.  Kinda cool. 

Same day I stepped on a fluke and it swam up my leg and got stuck in my shorts.   My heart can't handle much more excitement than that.

Nothing to worry about with Northern Puffers. I cut  'em belly side up just past the gills almost all the way through leaving the skin on the "back". Then peel it off.

Father - Son bonding... the best!!!

 

I think I might do the same - what did you get 'em on?  (usually they take any bait but prefer my expensive GULP tails ...LOL )
