These sheepshead fish pictures shown below are close up pictures showing you exactly what a sheepshead fish looks like. Sheepshead, often called "sheephead" without the S, are caught in salt water or brine water, and are a favorite eating fish for many fishing anglers. Larger sheepshead often lose their stripes while the smaller sheepsheads have clear black stripes on them. These fish have very strong jaws and molar like teeth, you do not want to get your finger in their mouth as they are known to crush oyster shells and crush crab shells without much effort, and can crush and feed on barnacles off of structures.

Please remember to always following fishing regulations for size limit and numbers, as it is important to release fish to help keep the population strong for the next time you go out fishing. Remember when releasing fish that you should handle them as little as possible, and get them back into the water as soon as you can so they dont die later.
