    I was using live shrimp. I had no clue the area I was in had sheephead. At first I thought it was a redfish or a stud trout. It was ripping out drag.

    I'm hitting it up every Friday, so hopefully I'll get lucky. I've been getting several a week in the 14-15" range and have gotten two 19"ers but haven't broken the 20" range yet.

    Yeah. There's a group of 3 at hellhole I see all the time. This was at Cassidy Bridge. The fly shop said the forest service was looking to trap and move them.

    there are a few otters at my river cabins. The fishing suffers because of them but it's awesome seeing them in the mornings while drinking coffee
