Really slow morning
I couldn't catch a cold until after 8am. I tried a few different spots, got bored and played with a couple reds and black drum. Really had my heart set on pompano so I went to the end of the jetties where I usually do good and sat there. About 9am the pomps moved in. Caught my limit in an hour of fishing.
The sheep were caught in between pompano on accident.
All were caught on yellowtail hooks and jig heads with live fiddlers.

Are the sheepshead still there in good numbers or is it over? I've been working on rebuilding my pole barn and shop and haven't had a chance to go this year.

Sheepshead have been pathetic this year. I pray much gave up on them. Pompano are way better to eat and are a blast to catch. My pole barn also blew away.
I rebuilt it by myself. Big job for a solo old guy.

The metal roofing and truss companies are keeping busy, for sure.

I finished the structure on mine, but need to build the enclosure underneath it for my shop. I'll start work on that tomorrow.

I am ready to be done with it and get out on my boat.

Normally I'd say you missed the best time of the year. Winter fishing is usually very productive here. This winter was the worst I've seen ever.
I think the storm pushed a lot of red tide back up into the bay and whacked a lot of fish.
Good luck with the barn.

I have also not seen much in the way of quality sheeps this year compared to last. And winter was slower for me than last year as well, and we didn't really get the red tide over here that I know of. Just an off season I guess.

Nice pomps!

I've always said bad days fishing make you appreciate the good ones. I guess the same can be said for the season.
As soon and the lady fish, aka exploding ass fish show up I'm going to start fishing flounder. Hopefully the hurricane left me enough grass flats to support my activity. Last I checked, a lot of sand was pushed over the grass. Time will tell.
