It’s the infamous Ladyfish. All bones but fun to catch.
On a recent beautiful sunny day at Pensacola Beach I tried my luck fishing in the surf. I had shrimp and sand fleas for bait. My hope was for a mess of whiting, pompano and/or whatever else I might hook. Apparently all I had in my area were ladyfish. They fight hard and will jump out of the water. But at the end all you do with them is throw them back!
I’m going to try out our fishing pier right at the public beach. Haven’t been on it yet. It’s a very long pier along which people catch all kinds of fish. Maybe this weekend.
