Get your Bandito Lionfish Gear to take care of those East Coast USA invasive species. Bandito manufactures spearguns, polespears, nets, and catch bags that work great for catching Lionfish. Don’t waste them though, the Lionfish make great meals! No need to skin them, the scales come right off with your fingers. Filet them, cook them whole, eat’em raw! Make them just like any other fish. The toxin only lasts a couple of hours while the dead fish is on ice so don’t be alarmed if you get poked while cleaning the Lionfish. Take a pair of scissors and cut the dorsal spines and the lower front and back spines off if you like. The pectoral fins do not have toxin in them.
