They are actually great eating. We fish for them in virginia all the time. Small float with a fluorcarbon leader. 20lb. to a small octopus hook. We use clam for bait.

Yes you can have and use both, I called FWC 2 days ago about this. You can have a fish onboard that is illegal to shoot, as long as it doesn't have a 'hole' in it. For example, you could have a Redfish that you caught and still have the bow onboard (note: can't gaff redfish either, so no reason for your red to have a hole in him). Basically they have to be able to tell you didn't shoot and keep something you weren't supposed to.

Guy I talked to was really reasonable and actually seemed like he encourage having both, .....kinda crazy

Hope that clears the muddy water a little

A snatching hook works best. Get a decent sized treble hook that you would use for a king stinger rig, and put a 2oz egg sinker above it, drop it down and start snatching!

Used to own a vhs of dr.jim on how to catch spadefish and he was fishing out of virgina using clam strips so I know that works and Ive caught them by accident on small piece of shrimp(fishing for sheepshead) and squid tenacle(bait fishing),used to spearfish them snorkeling off savannah.Found this on youtube and about 1/2 way into it they mention using shrimp
