There is nothing to be frightened of, its the very large ones that thrash about dangerously, just as already said turn them over and hold them as any other skate while retrieveing the hook, just be careful of the tail.

"Do they eat well" last one I had I hung for two days then cooked it as per normal. its ok but you wouldn't want to live on them lol

On the eating side I've never had one myself, but they are of no commercial value at all so I'm guessing they're not th best eating fish.

I've only had one small one and that wasn't a problem at all, just turned upside down and unhooked. I would be a tad nervous unhooking a 40-50lber though, especially when slinging the thing back!
