The rare scalloped back sheephead has been spotted near our region. Anyone catching one should immediately contact me.

It must be kept alive for scientists to study. See photo..

    looks like if something took a chunk out of him, if i caught him i’d let him go, thats a survivor

    Cool, never heard of them before and definitely haven't seen one.

    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you

    How do we remove that banner from the center of the frame?

    Bless his heart. I'd put him back as well.

    Is your photo oversized too? I was beginning to think I was the only one.

    I once saw a hog fish that had a hole through it's body probably from a spear fisherman and it was completely healed up, I let him swim, meat was small anyway.

    What browsers are you guys using? I don't have a problem with the image using Chrome on the PC or Safari on the iPhone.

    someone petted him too hard.

    I opened the thread in:

    Chrome = fine
    Safari = fine
    Microsoft Edge = fine
    Internet Explorer = image is blocked by banner and the whole page is not displayed properly

    That's your problem. The new forum page description language is not supported by the legacy Explorer browser. That's becoming more and more common. You should update to Edge or use Chrome.

    Yea I know every time I turn around I need to install new software cause what used to work doesn't anymore, what a pain. I still need the IE software for industrial software that I run on my computer, even that is going or has gone in that direction. I installed mox-whatever once and hated it, I guess it is like loading windows 10, like it or not here it comes. thanks Doc.

    Okay, I loaded Chrome, now it looks fine, what a crock! thanks again Doc, and I apologize to Capt. Louie for the derail. Now I am part of the Google regime I guess.

    I caught one just like that over here off Jacksonville....would've been 7 or 8 pounds if he had all his shoulders....he was all healed up good too, so it happened a long time previous....and seeing there wasn't much of filets, I turned that rascal loose .

    They are tough.....

    Just switched to Google Chrome. Makes all the difference in the world, no giant drop down in the middle of the pic. That fish is tough!
