Just thought I'd start a new question I don't have any prizes but I'd like to see how many know the actual proper name for a sheepshead (The ones we catch in Lake St. Clair.) the answer is directly from the DNR officer I spoke to today about the guy selling the carp.

People say gun owners are paranoid thats why they own guns, I beg to differ why would I be paranoid if I have a gun.

i posted it over in that topic. but it is illegal to sell any fish or game without a commercial license and you have to be selling it to someone with a business license.

I thought this was harder I didn't know what it was called until the c.o. I talked to told me. But hey then again I wasn't raised down here either. I don't think they live in the upper manistee. And yes it is a freshwater drum.
