Default How about Sheepshead Gigging?

I have to say I must be hard up to want to go and gig Sheepshead right now. I normally like to eat them fresh but hard to clean and they have to be big. I candy bar the meat and cut out all the red meat. What do yall think. I have 2 stainless welded all thread gig heads that I think will stand up for a night of convict stickin. Anyone been seeing any? I might get lucky and find a few flounders that have made their way back in early.

Let Me Know What Yall Think.

I have always gigged them......hope it's legal. Years back I was told mullet, flounder, and sheephead were the only legal fish to gig.

State reg.s only say No "Snatching". And no treble hooks. Kinda odd though. How ya gonna measure him before you gig him?
