Default flounder.. sheepshead.. pensacola pass 11/7

went out sunday night around pensacola pass with lights on at 12:30 am.. We found good areas and worked bad areas.. all in all we came home with four flounder (missed two).. one sheepshead.. scooped up a few crabs.. no doormats.. reason for no pictures!

We had struck several sheepshead and lost them due the gig no penetrating.. Any tips or does anyone use a different gig head when they see a nice sheepshead?

On Gigging Sheephead. You need to stick them from the side. Not straight down from the top.

I bend prongs all the time if I hit them from the top.

yeah we examined the big one we got and concluded that the best way was to hit them from the side.. easier said than done in 3-4 feet of water! lol

Also.. I am about to switch my metal shaft to bamboo.. My buddy was using my bamboo gig and i was using my stainless steel.. Needless to say I really think the flash of my gig was spooking some fish!!! I am ditching the stainless steel and only using that one when wading from now on! anyone else notice this?!?

A little flat black krylon will cure that flash!

You can hit sheephead from the top with all thread gig heads. I've yet to lose a fish, sheephead, flounder or otherwise, using all thread gigs!
