Sheepshead are a good fighting and tasty little game fish. i miss those days yankin one after the other out of the mangroves (and doin lots of whiffin on those chompy buggers) they feed a lot like tog.
they do I agree, the only difference is that extra row of teeth.

Good read Matt...Thanks:thumbsup:

Soon we all be back on the search.
it won't be soon enough. i'm soo sick of debates and talk, i just wanna fish. :rolleyes:

"and along steep, sodded meadow banks."

When I read that part I couldn't help but think about how undeveloped the coast must have been in 1914 and how many great sod banks there must have been to fish.

Cool article, thanks for posting.

I thought the same thing. Imagine all of the untouched oyster and mussel beds there were back then. Also Sheepshead love blue claw crabs. The combination of development and food source competition is probably why they are so rare now. If sheepshead were that abundant in 1914 I'm sure catching a 20lb tog in the back was standard buisness as well.
