Default Groundhog Day

Is it my imagination or is this EXACT same question coming up EVERY day now. (1) Please do a search on your subject....it's been covered; ad infinum (2) drive your boat to the pass and look around. The fact that every boat in Pensacola is on one side and in one place should be a hint (3) Support your local economy by hiring one of the local guides to take you out there for four hours or a delightful day and show you all the spots and technique (4) Minus all that, just get out there and get it the old college try. Experience is the best teacher. Good Luck.

First, i used the serach button many of times and second i am from the shore not a boat. Don't critize when you do not know all the information.

Default Apologies

If you are fishing from shore, your best bet is Ft. Pickens. Ft. McRae side is going to be a long walk. The Blazer threw me off. You will be fishing on bottom and you'll need to use a pompano rig or a light carolina rig...ideally both. Good luck.

Thanks for the help also, i want to get the jetties tomorrow for sure. What bait can i use? Will sand fleas be okay or can i possibly catch some small fish and cut them for reds or black drum? How big of hook should i use for a carolina rig?

Default Two rods

If you can put together two rods, rig the one you have the Carolina rig up with flouro-carbon leader, at least 30 pound. At least a 6/0 hook. Use some fresh mullet on that one. Your sheepshead rod can be lighter and I've had best luck on pompano rigs with fresh shrimp or sand fleas. No more than 4/0 hook. If you can find calm water to the back of the point you can freeline live shrimp or put them under a cork. The wire leader is not going to cut it for sheepshead and the Carolina rig will be for Redfish. Check out the other people. Don't look too hard for jetties.....it's not like Destin or Orange Beach.

Default Destin, FL?

Jezz, now you tell me Destin. Everybody says the East side is sanded in from dredge but that may not matter to sheepshead. Try the West side first. Mullet at any fish market. Sexton's on the north side of the main drag in Destin.
