Thread: Monster Sheepshead!
10-18-2011, 09:29 PM #1
Well to me it is a monster, I caught my personal best Sheepshead today. Almost made it to fourteen pounds. It weighed in at Wilcox Bait & Tackle tonight at 13 pounds 12 ounces. I caught him in the lower Chesapeake Bay with an Atlas reel spooled with braid, a mono leader and a 4/0 J hook with a live fiddler crab for bait. I barely felt the bite but I sure did feel the pull when I set the hook. It was a blast catching it from my jet ski. I also caught one around 7 lbs and a couple of Tautog. Here are a couple pictures of my Virginia Sheepshead citation. Ten lbs is a citation.

awesome catch! we have a fish here in the islands that has the exact same teeth as those sheepshead, they are called mu (emperor fish) and are very good eating. there meat is similar to lobster, i think because of there diet which consist of shellfish. im guessing that those sheepshead taste the same? the mu here are very smart and one of the most challenging fish to shoot while freediving. aloha and tight lines! maka
