This Has To Be The World Record For The Most Sheepshead Ever Caught In A Cast Net!
Published on February 16, 2016 under
A while back, a video of a guy catching a “boat load” of sheepshead in his cast net went a bit viral (and created a ton of comments and opinions) in our Private Salt Strong Fishing Tribe Facebook Group.

So here is what we could find out about this wild sheepshead cast netting video.
The guy with the net is a commercial fisherman and he was catching these while not on duty to feed his family while on the Anna Maria Island City Pier in Florida.
And quite honestly, if you are skilled enough to throw a 12-foot net off a dock and not completely rip it up from structure (not to mention, avoiding any getting any bycatch caught in your net), then you deserve every fish that you catch…
I still don’t know how there this many sheepshead in an area where he could get away throwing a net and not having it get snagged on some structure of some sort. And the fact that this many sheepshead didn’t see the net is amazing!
Note: For any beginners to fishing that are reading this, using a cast net like this is NOT the recommended way to catch a sheepshead. This is for experienced commercial anglers only.
Ever seen anyone catch more sheepshead in a cast net?
Let us know in the comments.
