Default Hunting Sheepshead

I am new to saltwater fishing. I want to go fishing this week (weather permitting). I live in Midway. Not looking for somebodys honey hole but would like some direction to take and equipment. Structure? Hook size? Bait? I have been reading some on Sheepshead and Flounder and think I would like to target these. Any help you can give will be appreciated.

Bridge pilings, Docks, Oyster beds, anywhere there are barnacles. Fiddler Crabs and live Shrimp are good baits. Place bait as close as you can get it to the structure. Try Garcon Point bridge.
