    Chasing Toothy Critters

    The weatherman was way off today. It was supposed to be heavy rain most of the day so I did not plan on going out. By 1400 hrs it had not rained and was very calm so I dropped my ski the water and went out in the Chesapeake Bay looking for dinner. Lucky for me I had one dozen fiddlers left from the other day. I had a pretty good hook up ratio today catching four Tautog and one nice Sheepshead. I kept two Tog and the Sheep. I was back home by 1700. I am getting ready to cook the Sheepshead for dinner tonight and now it is raining. Ha! Here are a couple pics.

    Ditto, Bri. Sheepshead has always been a "trash fish" in my circles. How do you prepare them?

    A lot of people around here including me eat them. I either fry, bake or blacken them. They are not in my top 5 eating fish but good just the same.

    blackened sheepshead is great. most ppl think they are trash fish because they tried to scale them. you clean a sheepshead with a filet knife <.>

    I generally reserve that term for bony fish; they don't filet nearly as easily as bass, reds & specs. But, to each their own...
