    Down south for a couple days. Caught a few yesterday. Ive never inshore. Caught my first sheepshead ladyfish and some kinda catfish. Guide about freaked out I was holding the cat fixing to take hook out. Said they was poisonous. He just cut the line.

    I hold saltwater cats all the time. Just be careful of the spines. Those sheepshead are good eating, congrats

    Nothing like ocean fishing. When I’m down during summer it’s usually too warm for in shore to be very good. Gotta a guy that’s taken me off shore past two summers and it’s been a lot of fun.

    Yep - keep and eat all the sheepshead you can. Take all the lady fish, vacuum pack whole, and deliver to someone you really hate! They are truly worthless.

    Like others said, the cats can be handled, just be real careful. They aren't bad eating either.
