Default Sheepshead, and Triggerfish

I am going to start going for these guys because I love catching fish I have never caught before, what I would like to know is what is the best bait, I hear sandflees are good.

Second, do either of these fish taste good (I do like fishy tasting fish and oily fish so as long, as they have a better taste than a blue I'm sure I'd love em).

Aren't Sheepshead the same thing as porgies? If so, yes they're edible. Never eaten them per se. I've had a fish chowder where the base stock was made from porgies and it was good.

Triggerfish I thought were a warm salt-water species found around coral reefs and only in peoples aquariums up here in the Northeast. If we're talking about the same triggerfish, never seen one in the wild north of florida.

I dunno about them being the same fish might be in the same family

Sheepshead

Porgy

Triggerfish I have never seen any around here but the report i was reading said they were catching them so I thought I'd ask, I'm talking about Gray Triggerfish By the way.

Anyway any tips on catching big Sheepshead or Gray Triggerfish would help me out biggrin_blue.gif I hear sandfleas are a killer bait
