Default March 22 Fat Sheephead

Could not see a dayum thing above the water Saturday morning but we made it out eventually. 1 dive in 90 ft of water and 1 in 50 ft. Avg temp was 63 F according to my computer. still pretty chilly. it was a little warmer on the bottom...bearable even during the shallower dive. i froze my ass off at the safety stops, though. a 3mm/2mm wetsuit and lavacore hooded vest is NOT enough for 63 F. I thought I exited the water with two "innies."

Anyway, got a decent mess of fish including a couple fat sheephead!

btw i discovered while cleaning these fish that all the sheephead we shot were females with bellies full of eggs. had i known that, i would probably have let them go. just an FYI in case anyone is interested.

I didn't think to weigh them. I gave the fish to my buddy from out of town so I cleaned them as soon as I got a chance and sent him on his way (4 hr drive).

I did measure one. I should have written it down...I believe it was 22 inches. Best I've caught, for sure!


And yes, 2 dives in my 3mm/2mm. 2nd dive was at the 3 barges. I went ahead and pitched the anchor on the concrete before I talked myself out of it (my buddy drove a long way)....so we had to go free it. Glad I went. Temps were bearable on the bottom and we got another stringer full of sheephead.
