Anybody catching puffers?

I'm looking to go down to Mercer's pier and hopefully catch some pufferfish. Just curious if anybody has been seeing any caught anywhere?

Still, what is the best best way to prepare them?
I clean them like I do catfish, peel them like a glove. My family prefers to give them a milk and egg bath then coat them in Autry House Corn Meal and fry them. Cap'n Frank calls them the chicken wings of the sea and imo that fits them perfectly.

I wonder if the little pier down at morehead between morehead and Beaufort is any good. We use to catch them off the old causeway pier there a couple decades ago.
