Default Spadefish

I've looked at the Florida Regs and it doesn't even include spadefish as a fish with a limit. So can you gig them?

Yes, you can. In fact I have shot them off the deck of my boat with a speargun. They are not listed in the list of prohibeted species for spearing and gigging, such as redfish, pompano, sharks, and a couple of other species. They taste great too!

I'll second that -- they don't have much meat to them, but they are definitely good eating. And great fun on some light tackle and small hooks as well.

Good luck.
