    First time posting. I had the surprise of my life a couple Thursdays ago when I was fishing in my kayak off of Shelter Island when a fish hit my lure and almost pulled the rod out of my hands. I thought it was a really nice legal halibut at first. It put up an excellent fight on my light rod and reel and I was so surprised when I saw color and it was a sheephead. It ended up being 22". Not sure the weight, but it felt about 10lbs or maybe more. I"ve been fishing SD Bay for 40 years and this was a first for me. Just thought I'd share sense none of my buddies believed I caught a sheephead in the bay until I showed them my pic. I released him, so he is out there for you guys. IMG_1674.JPG

    Nice!! I’ve gotten one from the yak as well (not as big as yours though).

    Great catch, thanks for sharing!
