    Default Scuba world record sheepshead?

    Any progress in this regard? I shot a monster sheepshead this past weekend- but it was on scuba. I used a little electronic scale, so I can't call it certified, but I guess next time, I'll wait to weigh it on shore before gutting it.

    I wish we'd have taken more. I think the captain got some video with it...

    I haven't downloaded the video yet, or even looked at it on the camera. You know, I actually forgot about that.

    I will do that this afternoon and put it on youtube.

    When I was in Norfolk, "back in the day" - we used to catch sheepsheads on hook & line anywhere from a few pounds on up to 5 or 6 pounds on occasion... I was just a kid so I considered them HUGE. We used BOILED oysters or fiddler crabs for 'em. Damn things stole your bait all the time! Weird teeth on them dudes!

    But Holy cow man -Almost 15 pounds! WOW! Nice one bigtime!

    I gotta get some salt back in me veins! I was a Norfolk "navy brat" & I used to be a Cali surfer punk too! I wish I knew about spearfishing back then! Damn "convict's" (what my dad called 'em) would'nt of stole so many crabs & oysters from me & my old man!

    In Cali a "sheepshead" is a totally different fish...Here too...In Wisconsin we have a freshwater version and they can get quite big in Lake Michigan - Except they don't have freaky people teeth! Here is a pic of a GIANT!

    Yeah, I'm originally from Cleveland OH, and when I told my dad we had Sheepshead for dinner he was grossed out till I explained to him that our Sheepsheads are different from thiers. The Freshwater Sheepseads are members of the Drum family, while the Saltwater Sheepsheads are members of the Porgy family.

    BTW, that is a HUGE sheepie! We had a few almost that size in the aquarium I used to work at, but I've never seen one nearly that big offshore, congrats!

    The Fl. Aquarium has a few sheepies in a tank that are well over 10lb. They are in the tank with the Snook and Drum with the mangroves. I about went apeshit the first time I seen one in there, he was literally 2 feet away from me. I could have reached in and grabbed him with my bare hands.

    Teh, I shot a 12 3/4 pounder under the old Gandy bridge back in the 60's.
    Never heard of a bigger one till you came along. Good catch!!!
    I was amazed at the size of mine, I know how you must feel.

    TEH - Your imagination is out of control. I hae a 9 and 7 YO, I have been to the aquarium at least a thousand times. Not one of those sheepshead are over 7#'s. I have shot a few 10#'ers, and those at the aquarium are not 10#

    Holy shit that is the biggest one I've ever seen. Amazing.

    Aquariums act like a magnifying glass and make the fish appear larger than they really are.
