I grew up in Mich. and caught loads of them. Definitely don't eat them.

The 23lb. one is a monster. I never saw one that big. The biggest I ever caught was about 6 lbs.

The funny thing is their saltwater relatives, the red drum (better known as redfish) and black drum, are both supposedly good eating. Redfish got to be so popular that they were almost fished out in Fla. A restocking program and slot limit (can only keep them if they are between 18 and 27 inches, all bigger and smaller ones must be released) has helped regrow the population, and Walmart now sponsors a redfish tourney that you might see on your local Fox Sports station on the weekends.

Have to agree about the redfish in NW Florida -- lots of slot limits on them -- but they are coming back quickly and are great catches.

Not sure if the sheepshead in the back waters of Florida are the same, but they are great to eat and in such numbers you can take the whole family out and have a great day on the water or off a dock.

One of the nice things about Pensacola is you have both salt water fishing - both bay and Gulf blue water --- inner bay fishing -- mixed water and up the rivers for fresh water fishing -- and you literally dont have to get out of the boat to try them all.

The saltwater sheepshead you are referring to is not related to the drum family which includes the freshwater sheepshead (freshwater dum), redfish (red drum) and black drum. I have never caught a saltwater sheepshead, but have heard they are good eating also. It is a little confusing, but if you saw pictures of each of them you can tell the drums are all related and that the saltwater sheepshead is not.

I live near Ft. Lauderdale and have never fished in/around Pensacola, but the entire Gulf Coast from Destin to the Miss. River delta is supposed to be outstanding fishing, both onshore and offshore. Down here the redfish population never recovered in Biscayne Bay, and for some reason the Fla. Wildlife Commission won't stock them, although they stock Tampa Bay and other places. Every now and then someone catches one and its a big story (or a secret if they are smart and don't say anything).
