Tuesday the 13th I got a chance to get out to the CBBT after work. I finished the bathroom and shower tile work around 1pm and took off to Chick's beach.
|It's also a steam shower|
|Recessed niches I built from scratch|

|Shower head on top, speakers on the left and right, control panel, and 3 water jets.|
I got on the water around 2:30 and took off to my favorite spot for sheepshead. I almost immediately caught a small striper on a fiddler crab, which was a new one for me...I guess those things eat pretty much anything.
Within 30 minutes I found just what I was looking for...SHEEPSHEAD!
After a great fight with several runs that felt like I was fighting a pile-driver, I horsed it in with my release reel and Shimano trevala rod. It measured in at 25"! My 3rd citation sheepshead for the year! I love these fish! As soon as I lowered it in the water it took off with a hard kick and splashed me in the face. No need to revive that one! Did I mention I love catching sheepshead?
I fished the area for another 30 minutes or so with no luck so I decided to switch over to the spadefish. It was a little more work than usual finding them but I managed to catch three 12"-14" spades. I have a hard time deciding what I like to catch more...spadefish or sheepshead. I'm glad I'm in an area I can catch both in the same day!
