    Oh Brother Ronnie, go back out to the garage! I was thinking more of a Longhorn shirt. :naughty::naughty:
    I hope I don't find out he was within 2-3 miles of my house and didn't stop by or even call----

    Talk about a fish whose mouth you dont want to get your hand into, this is a sheepshead. And for those that havent seen one in person, no those choppers are not photoshopped. They eat oysters, and use the teeth to break into the oysters.

    I live on the gulf coast in Texas (about 20 minutes east of Houston in Baytown). My house is only a few minutes from the bay, and that is where I do most of my fishing. my buddy lives on the bay and has a nice pier that runs out into a large oyster bed in about 4' of water. We catch a ton of trout, redfish, croaker, sand trout there, with the occasional sheepshead. If I'm feeling adventurous, I get out my kayak. I've got a wilderness ride 135. It's big, but stable and moves pretty good.

    From the time I was old enough to remember, my dad had me out fishing. He was a serious angler back then, fishing a lot of big tournaments in the 80s (all fresh water, bass tourneys). We always fished fresh until I was around 12 or so and he traded the bass boat for a center console bay boat. Once we started on the salt, we rarely went back fresh water fishing. When he sold our land (had 2 stocked ponds) and the boat in '00, I quit fishing. A couple of years ago, i went on a whim with my buddy and was instantly hooked again.

    After I bought my kayak, I started getting back into bass fishing again. as much as I love a good spec or red, there is just some good nostalgia with bass. Typically, I also find the scenery better on/around fresh water. I stick to the bayou mostly. Lately, I've been stopping at Sheldon Reservoir just outside of Houston on my way home from work catching bass for a couple hours (I'm working nights, so no interruptions in family time). I am planning to get my yak out there soon. I hear it is absolutely beautiful when you get away from the road.

    I dont have a ton of pics of the fish I've caught, but here's a few. First is a red. It was about 23" if memory serves me. Reds are some fighters, a lot of fun to catch. Next is a golf course bass (never kept them). before the course shut down, they started letting us fish the ponds. Last fish is a bass I caught at the reservoir. This bass and the golf course bass are the same species (largemouth bass). I've caught bass my entire life and have never seen one that dark. My theory is adaptation to the surroundings. The water is quite dark, and I think it is just natures camouflage.

    The last pic is my kayak. It's currently hanging from the rafters in my garage, and the last time it got used was surveying flood damage in the wake of Harvey. I plan to change that soon.

    Sorry for the novel. My wife tells me I talk alot (and my ex did too).
