odd catch

sheeponplastic

I picked up this sheepshead this weekend while casting a shoreline in search of snook or redfish. The fish grabbed at my 6″ soft plastic bait which imitates a swimming mullet. This is unusual because sheepshead feed off of barnacles and other small shellfish, thats exactly what their sheep-like front teeth are for, hence the name. They’re supposedly good eating, so I brought him home and will probably cook him up tonight.
