Last Saturday, 10/24 Anthony and I headed north to the Strand looking for Sheephead.
It was high tide and the kelp was submerged several feet below the surface, and It took a while to find a productive piece of kelp. It was work having to peddle in place all day but it was well worth it. I never left that piece of kelp.

I ended the day with 4 Sheephead up to 18” and a 15” Calico.

You guys could fast forward the video to 1:30 to see the 1st Sheep of the day and to 2:07 the see the big one. There’s also another chunky one at 4:51.

Thanks Pacific scout

it kinda does looks like a small striper or yellow bass lol

I caught several of these off the reefs over the past several years. The next one I may drop back to the bottom and see what will eat it!

How deep were you? I notice all the sheep have prolapsed butts, from Barotrauma? But no signs of barotrauma on the other species?

I was kinda asking. I don't have a lot of experience targeting goats. Of the <20 I have caught, some have been prolapsed and some not, with extreme depth(+150') seeming to produce more prolapses, versus <50'.
