Yup just "Git er done"

The only legal issue is do you have a fishing licence for that water if required ?

In many places, in addition to needing a fishing license, you need to know that some kinds of fish, or some kinds of fish when they are too little or too big or at some times of year, are not legal to keep. Stores that sell fishing licenses may have a little book from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission or a similar authority that lets you know what fish are okay to catch and keep (

For example, the Florida fishing chart
( )
says that Bonefish are catch and release only, and that flounder have to be at least a foot long (12 inches) to be kept. And many species have closed seasons.

There are also rules for sea creatures other than fish, including crabs and oysters.
