    I've never eaten a gafftop, but some people really like them. Anything you can do to remove the slime before filleting them will help.

    If you are fishing at night, you should be able to find snapper.

    Never tried eating ladyfish either, but since they are in the tarpon family, I'm sure they are full of bones.

    we always pull up lady fish and just hack them up for bait and then we end up getting cats.

    Why don't you try something different for bait, like herring. If your bait is catching something you are not too interested in, it's time to switch. Also try switching the presentation. Cats are usually caught when your bait is sitting on the bottom. A Carolina rig type set-up might even change your catch.

    Are you catching any crab in your nets? If so, try half a crab with a circle hook. That will most likely produce a different catch.

    This is a Carolina rig.

    It's just a sinker above a swivel, with a 1-3 foot leader and a hook.
