Sheepshead Fish

Sheepshead are not as popular to target when fishing the Texas Laguna Madre, but they're a great keeper fish to take home for a meal. Their skin and scales are hard to cut through but the white meat you get from these prickly creatures are tasty. This nice sized sheepshead was caught at humble channel on dead shrimp.

Evan DeHart shows off this beast of a sheepshead getting it ready for the carving table. This young angler takes his fishin seriously! 

Other popular places to catch sheepshead's are at the Port A Jetty and Packery Channel Jetty. Be sure not to cast to far out on the jetties. Try to stay closer to the big granite boulders when fishing for these guys. Also, you might try the boat hole for this species as well.
