    Normally I don't care, nor would I ask but my buddy caught one yesterday that I couldn't believe. We were dragging tubes for smallies and he hooked into this thing,,, he kinda knew it was a sheephead right off the bat. I asked if he wanted me to get the net,, he said, ya,, just in case it was a smallie or walleye. Anyway,, I net this thing and bring it in the boat and we both BUST OUT laughing. We had to put the scale on it,,,,,,, 14.6lbs:SHOCKED:. I'm gonna see if he can send me the pic's and post 'em. Has anyone caught one that size before???

    i've caught a couple in the 12s and a couple not put on a scale that were 12 or more (i'd bet on more, the ones up in port huron get huge). a 14lber is a pig though. bet that was fun at the very least. was the color of it more of a reddish gold? all the bigger ones i've caught seem to be more reddish as they get bigger.

    No, I didn't get it mounted-probably should have but man, it was an ugly fish. She fought the thing for just under an hour on an ultralight. We were fishingout of my little 14 footer and i chased it for probably 30 minutes. Absolutely Epic!
