A big 10-4 on that right there! Shooting 90+ pound Amberjack with no powerhead in God knows what depth of water is a whole other tournament in itself. Big brass ones.....all of you guys on Team HeadHunter. Congrats to Spear Ten and all of Team HH. Hey Ricky, I only wish I had some photos from 1981 of you in your Red Lobster uniform! I would make it my avatar in honor of your ass-kicking fish! You're the man!

Re: Where do I even start

Sorry about not posting any pics of the fish but the pics that I had didn't do the fish justice. Carrie Renner took some for me that came out great.

The first is me right after I just weighed it.
The second pic is of me with my sheepshead and Julian with his first place snapper. This pic will give you some size of how big the sheepshead was.

Re: Where do I even start

Damn, it's almost as big as the winning snapper! See, and here I thought you were crazy when you told me you were going spearing in the nuclear plant cooling water. Did anybody else notice that you turned in the only fish with three eyes?

Re: Where do I even start

Awesome sheepie! It doesn't really surprise me though. RZ's been mentioning for years that he's seen some real monsters before in that area. I knew it was only a matter of time before he pulled it off! Congrats again on a new tournament record!

We enjoyed doing the SPO. Lot of fun! It was great to see Ricky set the new AJ record. And what a thrill to see ol' bubblewrap win the tournament grouper catagory with that beautiful black! Wow!

LOL...it's been a few years since I captained a twin engine go fast...80NM out and back to the dock in a little over 2 hours....!! Damn...should have made one more dive!!!!

Anyway, we all enjoyed it, and appreciate all the HARD WORK that the SPUC put into it!!

Dan

Congrats to you Ritchie that is truly one monster sheep head but I did read in the paper today that the Fla. Aquarium is missing there prized African Zebra fish that is said to look just like a sheep head.
