Bass, Hell! Saltwater Catfish are some fighters
This is a Gaftopsail Catfish I caught today.
These fish are not only tasty, but they are great fighters as well. Mine is about 30 inches long and missed the Fla State Record for Gaftopsail Catfish by 8 oz. 8 lbs and 14 OZ and 32" long is the state record fish and mine weighed in at 8 pounds and 5 OZ.
Today has been a good day. I also caught a little tiddler Hardhead Cat, maybe a pound and inches long....not good for eating...they taste gamey and nasty, apparently. Even Bull Sharks won't eat 'em, although it's said they make good live bait for Tarpon, since Tarpon has such a boney mouth and they will eat a hardhead.
