Clear out the sheephead

Recommended Posts

Can someone please get rid of the sheephead. Does anyone net these fish and sell them. I would think they can be good for someone else. Is it possible?

See now, sheephead also have a hand in the economics of Waskish. They keep stealing bait so anglers are forced to buy more bait from the bait shops. Maybe the DNR needs to start a Sheepie stocking program. That would make Jonny really happy... grin.gif

Where are they in the winter? They are rarely caught from my experiences.
