With all due respect to the comments below on sheepshead, no one keeps them to eat and their population has skyrocketed in the recent decade. something needs to be done with them. whats the difference if someone kills them when they catch them or bring them home for garden fertilizer? I'll be honest, ive tried them and theyre awful compared to a walleye/northern/panfish. I can tell you right now the guides out there hate them. As far as carp, well people constantly shoot them with bows for entertainment...... rarely are they eaten soooooo lets all get a hold of ourselves.

There's this guy that fishes At Downtown of Green Bay Docks and he purposely toss carps on the shore for dead. Like seriously who else does that kind of shit? Eat what you kill and kill what you eat. Don't kill fish just because of their populations is so huge and massive.
@ Black cap's comment. I used to think the same of drum and carp, and did the same thing .... 30 years ago as a kid , wtf dude. It's not like you can stop fish from being here, and all you are doing is further helping the seagulls and pelicans from eating more, which they eat too many of our fish we want to keep . Just let em go. 2 years ago someone proved to me that drum are actually a good table fare, if kept small, and prepared properly. It's not my first fish I would keep, but I don't mind eating them . To each their own applies , I get that , but if I seen another angler purposely killing fish , I may have to take pics and report. Kill and take home for the garden , it's all good , but quit making our shorelines smell like stink. Tight lines all
