Default Maybe an early Spring..convicts!

Looks like that the Sheepshead and Mangrove Snapper are here...The boys were in school, so I went out on a solo mission...a few dozen shrimp and some freelining fun...

Sheepshead tips...
Bridges, docks, rocks, jetties
Owner or gamakatsu J hooks #6-1/0
Bait: live shrimp, fiddler crabs, oysters, barnacles, sand fleas, ghost shrimp etc..
15-20 # fluorocarbon
BB weights for slow moving water
Freelining is great
Egg slip weights for vertical fishing or drifting
Chum for sheepshead by scraping barnacles off pilings and concrete walls..
Lift your rod tip occasionally as sheepshead will hold onto a bait without you feeling it...I hook so many this way..
Watch out for thier teeth and spines...both are treacherous

Anyway good luck and herd those sheep!

I love fishing with my boys, but it's a lot of fun to get out there solo on occasion. Looks like a productive trip.

Someone told me that scraping barnacles from pilings is not allowed. I personally think they didn't know what they were talking about, but can anyone confirm? Not trying to get anyone in trouble, just legitimately curious.
