Thanks!
 
Yep, and right infront of that bench too.  Good spot for trout(especially on dries), and if they're not hitting then the smallies, big gills, and carp might!

About 1100 miles from NW PA, but thought you guys might enjoy some pics from my trip to the Gulf of Mexico in Mississippi last week.
 
My buddy John and I got a 4 hour charter from our families for Father's Day for bull redfish and sharks.  We got on reds right away and got our limits within the first hour.  I've never fought such a hard fighting fish before.  We loved it, but I did find myself wishing that we were doing a little more active fishing and less just reeling in after the Captain and his mate did all the baiting and casting. 
 
John with the big fish of the day:

 
Me with my biggest red:

 
42" black tip shark:

 
Our total haul for the day:

Reds are probably my favorite fish to eat.  Usually one of the most expensive dishes at restaurants along the Gulf Coast.  Very sought after table fare down there. 
 
In Mississippi, there is a slot limit of 18-30" on reds.  You can keep two in that range, and one over 30". Most of the shows I see where they're catching reds is in Louisiana.  They have a limit of 5 per day I believe, with only one over 27" so I would imagine that's why you see most of 'em going back in.

Steelhound, you take some of the most beautiful fish pics I've ever seen. I'm guessing you have a background in photography? If not, you should. That black and white if the crappie that is partially submerged is gorgeous. Good job sir.

Slabdaddy, thank you. I'm just a guy that likes to catch fish and display the beauty that I see in them. Honest to god those are all iPhone pictures. I lost the charging cable for my camera and haven't ordered a new one yet.

I have heard that the popularity of blackened redfish from Chef Paul Prudhomme's show/cookbook put a huge hit on the drum populations.  Part of why most states with them, have slot limits.  Which by the way, is a very tasty way to cook just about any fish or chicken.  I only caught one in a slot limit, in NJ, but was on work travel and didn't want to keep in a cooler for a few days.  Great fighter too.  They are closely related to croakers and kingfish (sea mullet), which are both great eating.  Also closely related to freshwater drum (Erie sheepshead), which most consider junk, but if you read up on "gaspergou", they are supposedly good eating.  Hoping to run into some red drum in Avon, NC in a few weeks.  I'll definitely cook one up there if I am lucky enough to hook one.

I've been frying fish for 20 years and am a fairly good cook. I filleted a sheephead once (almost no meat on them, they are all bones) and fried it up. It was disgusting. I do not recommend anyone EVER eating one. I've tried carp and sucker as well. Sucker is actually pretty good. Carp is not so good, but is 1000 times better than sheephead.

Someone posted on here a few years ago that they were delicious.  I have never kept any, most that I have ever caught are from the rivers, and don't eat the "good eating" fish from them.  They seem to be pretty popular down south.

Back in the early 80's an old timer turned me on to "poor man's shrimp" made from sheephead.  He would take the meat from the back of the sheephead and cut it into strips about the size of shrimp, boil it to cook, then chill in the fridge for a day.  I tried it a couple times and it wasn't bad.  The texture and flavor did remind me of shrimp, although the ****tail sauce probably helped.
 
 I  stick to real shrimp these days

Speaking of shrimp......try par boiling them in beer.........remove and chill.........firms them up and gives them a nice flavor. 10 x's better then just thawing and serving.
