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.
