Filefish lesson

My Buddy and I where out the other day off Jupiter and were overwhelmed by Filefish. We couldn't get our baits past them. I heard they were good to eat and we tried to catch them with hook and line( with no luck). The question is can you legally gaff them and is there a limit on them. The last question is are they worth the trouble as table fare?
