What a beast! Congrats! I bet that beast gave you a sore arm and wrist!

Btw, where did you get the fish grip thingy?

Not too many fish get as ugly and smelly as a big ol sheepie. sick I’ve seen a couple that big caught by others but this one was easily the biggest one I’ve caught. I seriously cannot imagine what the state record fish must have looked like in person.

W-I-W-F, that fish grip thing sure is handy and I really started using them on channel cats last year. They work great for landing and handling them. They lock, they are strong, and a nice little hole in the handle for weighing your fish. I bought mine online @ “The Fish Grip” website. They have all sorts of colors, but the yellow ones are formulated for bigger fish. They are approx $15 I think.

It is a Sheepshead, or Freshwater Drum, and a particularly large and ugly one at that! Any weights or measures?

That might be the ugliest one I've seen....

And the fish ain't pretty, either.

Just kidding, DTro! smile

Wow, that's the biggest drum I've ever seen. Nice work. I was gonna guess 12, but it looks like I'm low.

Nice sheep Darren, bet that thing fought like crazy. I have gotten some huge ones over the years on Blackduck lake, they don't like to come off the bottom. I will guess 18lbs.

When my son and I would fish Waconia, I would catch walleyes and my son would catch sheephead. Fishing the same spot, fishing the same crawler/spinner rig! He just had the sheephead mojo going! wink

Didnt put a tape to it but the scale read 18 and change.

DTRO, that is a smelly beast. I caught this one last weekend and she was 14 1/4 lbs and 30 1/2 inches. She fought like a beast and I was certain she was my 12 lb walleye.

      Does anyone have A 5 person sleeper ice house for rent during February 6th through the 10th?

      Police brutality is a concern right now in many areas, and everyone is working to safeguard their rights. But it is this situation itself that needs to be examined. Having knowledge of police brutality was really helpful to me. Try this at . There is a ton of information here https://supremestudy.com/essay-examples/police-brutality/ on it, which you may also examine in further detail huge learn more about. I hope it will be helpful to you

      Finding between 3-7 inches of ice around most of the st cloud area. Was on one of the bigger lakes and one of the shallower ones in our area today. On the larger lake,  lots of ice in the bays, but main lake had roughly 3 inches where I checked.  The Shallow one had right around 7 inches.  Fish bit very well on one, and not so great on the other.

      Polkiss this...   Logging is the only way out of the Smokey the Bear debacle. We've created so much fuel in the understory from fire suppression. Logging, BIGTIME may be the only answer. Top off the past century of fire suppression with now hundreds of thousands of acres of bug kill in our mature forests when as much as a bug farts, millions of acres lie waste to everything from fire, even micro organisms in the soil. Then heavy rain, or snowmelt washes away what's left...... Log Baby Log 👍👍 and flood the mills with wood, not ash.

      many thanks to you all for providing the information.  it is appreciated.
    • Polkiss
      Knowing and comprehending it myself For instance, logging has increased significantly over time. This can't possibly be permitted. I can speak for myself when I say that we now need to consider how to read about this essay [source] because I was able to learn a lot and even used this information to write a course at the university. Therefore, if anyone needs some knowledge about deforestation, it is useful from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Everyone must protect the environment!

      Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the safety tip.  Always good to know where springs in lakes are!  👍
    • monstermoose78
      Ok I did not check ice thicknesses yet but green, blue, baxter, lori, and elk all had anglers on them. I hope to check thicknesses soon.
    • Cookie123
      There is also some springs in the way back of blue lake ( In nashwauk MN) If you go back there you may run into some if you go to the right or the left there is some both directions so I would suggest not going back there or if you do i would check the ice every 25ft or so at least have fun out there
