Looks most likely to be a Gulf Toadfish, Opsanus beta, judging from its size, location caught, and other similar identifying features.

I am not familiar with fish from Florida. However, that one belongs to the family Lophiidae. Most probably it is Lophiodes reticulatus. Need better resolution photos for identification.
