Softshell Sheep Ed

20 posts in this topic

So lastnight fishing I think Ed broke a new record by catching more Sheephead than Turtles on cut bait in one night!

He went 5 sheephead to only 2 softshell turtles.Which in most cases is the other way around! I think the name Sheep Ed is comming on strong!The only person that could ever pull off numbers like this on a regular basis.

So the Question is! Softshell Eddie or Sheep Ed? What do you think?

just so he don't look bad... He did manage a few cats in the mix...and helped get the boat into the water again!

We should stop boating on thursdays. Hasn't been working for either of us lately. The sheeps and turtles were average sized. Nothing like what I usually catch. wink

Depends on what kind of "jet boat " you have grin

Seriously, seen the pics, glad no-one got hurt.

I also hear from a very reliable source that someone else from the BPCL is coming over to the dark side wink

I wanted to take pics of the lastest incident, but was told to shut up and push. As for the pics of my situation.... um yeah. They are just fine on the camera. Sounds like the shore fishing thing might go down soon amongst some of us usual boaters.

I did take the big fisherman out to the lake today. We got into the green sheephead.

Yep, I did the same, but we got into more of the green shad though whistle

Anyone notice the difference between a local lake boat launch and the ones down on the rivers? grin

I am sure on a league night with a local contest rolling it can get crazy, but those times are far and few between.

I can go on and on about what I encountered yesterday crazy, but what is the use. I wish all launches could be as easy, friendly and laid back as river launches are, even on the busy days (IMO).

yep, it's funny how you end up [PoorWordUsage]'ing for an extended time at the launch with people you've never met. Out of hundreds of times I've launched on the river the past few years, I can probably count on one hand the times I got frustrated.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
