The Gaff is abundant here too in Brevard County, FL salt waters.
But I never caught any with the young in their mouth or may be
I simply failed to notice it.
I tried to eat the Gaff cooked with every known Catfish recipe
and then some. The peculiar (muddy ?) taste made it hardly palatable
and that's when I quit trying to eat.
