People would be amazed with what goes on in those canals down there. You can throw on a mask and snorkel, jump in, and the majority of fish you will see are non-native aquarium fish. Quite the experience.

Sounds like you can probably gig them, but who really knows these days. Coming from a multi generation Florida family, we always had gigs in garage for frogs and mullet. A ton of fun.

I bet they would be a handful on the end of a gig if they started whipping their tail around.

Not sure which category the iguana will fall in.

The last few years I’ve driven down to FL to fish for Peacocks from my kayak. The fishing is great and those lizards are everywhere! 12”-5’ long. It’s pretty crazy. Their legs and tails look really meaty. I’m sure they’re tasty.
