Caught this guy under the 3 mile bridge (Pensacola) today. This is not a sheephead it is indeed a black drum.

    ...Nice! It's been awhile since I have been to the coast to fish.
    Ever been in a boat, when a school of those swims under?
    Really strange, eerie!
    Sheephead look almost identical to that. The first sheephead I caught, I laughed my * off at their teeth! Look just like they have a little set of people teeth...not all pointy and knarly.
    I think they eat a lot of barnicals, crustaicions(?)...so the "people" teeth...[:D]

    Those teeth do almost humanize the sheephead. Funny little critters and they fight like no one's bidness! Going again Sunday, hoping for redfish or flounder this time.

    The school of these was eerie swimming by the anchor line. I can't begin to imagine how it would have been if I was in the water with them. Gives me the jibblies.

    ...yeah the first time I ever heard a school of them swim under the boat was at night...a real foggy night in the crash channel down at Chorpus...all that drumming, thumping vibrating sound gave me chicken skin...till figured out what in the hell it was making the noise! I love fishing in the Gulf, especially live shrimp, sure can catch some wild looking fish...[:D]

    ...I learned years ago that whatever you catch in the Gulf will ALL bite the bejesus out of you. After having some toothy little monster eat my finger once, I thought screw that...I'll grab them thru the gill! Bad idea. The first fish I grabed by the gill, cut * to the bone, forgot what it was, but the dang gills were like razor blades![:0] THEN I got smart and bought some kind of long plier looking things that you could reach in with and remove the hook...[:D]
