I live in Shalimar and kayak fish. How are the local bridges during winter? Loacl as in Shalimar, Cinco Bayou, and Mid-bay bridges.

Sheepshead should be on fire here in a few weeks. Shrimp on knocker rig, fish finder rig or jig head and roll it down the pilings. All 3 bridges hold em in good numbers.

2/0 max hook size max. I sometimes use 1/0 of I'm missing a lot. They are very tough fish to hook.. Nicknamed bandits..

Small hooks, quick hook set that's why a knocker rig works well. Can set it quick and feel it quick. Just enough weight to hold bottom. Back in the bayous 1/2 oz should work. At the Destin bridge ur gonna want to weight up due to current.
