Sunday we showed up with an abundance of shrimp, but the bite seemed to shut off and we headed out for a bit. I'm glad we did. Water was very clear and we were pretty much sight fishing in 50 fsw. I know nothing about the sheep migration, but considering piers to jetties to pass as I've been reading over the course of the seasons and the fact I caught one of our bigger two sheeps a few miles offshore, I'm guessing they're heading out.

Still a great weekend. Glad you had some happy customers. We had some fresh redfish Sunday, I ate our only Saturday sheep tonight, and I have 4 more meals of sheepshead planned this week myself. We also boated a couple of triggers and a big flounder that day. I didn't think about it until the drive home today, but my friend whose boat I was on was only a spec away from an GC inshore slam.
Don't be depressed about not catching fish, hey you could be at work. If you ever see me catching and your not, please feel free to call me on my cell 341-9816 and if I can help you I will,, But some days I too don't do well I just chalk it up to it's fishing not catching.. LOL...
Catching the sheepies can drive a fisherman crazy sometimes, but I have a long with some of the guides learned how to get people who've never ever caught one, catch them. sometimes people still have a hard time, but most of the time are clients get if after a while. I've learned over the years that having the right bait and size of the bait and presentation is everything when sheepshead fishing. Now when I say presentation, you might be thing, ok, it's just a shrimp, but having it at the right depth is key and drifting the right area is also key.

I didn't use crabs at all this year, I've used live shrimp, fresh dead shrimp. I try not to use flash frozen shrimp, they are too mushy, another great bait for sheepshead is sand flees.

The migration of sheepies is about to end, it starts around March 12 and last till April 15 or around then.
I hope this helped some.
Good luck this season.
