Picked 6 nice sized ones - found them just before they started getting woody about two weeks ago.

Should be great year for them.

6 nice sized Sheephead around the beginning of Aug ? That has to be an early date record. At least for me it would be by a far stretch.

I haven't even bothered looking because for one it's too early and two it's way too dry.

They were picked in the same area that my next door neighbor Frank found this one last year

I am no mushroom expert - but he always get early ones from the patch of stumps behind his house...
