Like everyone said J hooks carolina rigged with as lite a weight as you can get by with, have you ever tried using hermit crabs for bait? When I was younger we use to murder the sheephead using hermit crabs,but I really haven't fished for them in quite some time. Hope this helps.

I like 2/0 owner mosquito hook with either no weight or a small split shot depending on the current if the fish are visable , usally 30lb fluorocarbon around heavy structure and 20lb in the pass with 1-3ozs depending on current standard carolina rig works best in the pass but as soon as you feel a tap reel tight . also diffrent baits always help some time they like shrimp sometimes fiddlers , if they dont work raw oysters or crusteans off the pilings work great, if you are serious about catching them be prepared for all angles, now is the tiome they are definatly there.

You never know unless you go
