You in the right section? If you are, you're a mad man!

Yeah when I tell people I go free diving for sheepshead they have that look like you are freaking crazy due to the temps, but I enjoy the crap out of it. I have been to multiple locations around the bay but the numbers are just not there.
Just wondering if there are other sheepshead free divers out there that are braving the temps

I don't much about that area but i do know that over this direction the nearshore reefs are holding them, bay cones, they were thick in the destin harbor and they've been all over docks. I'm sure you will get on them, just make sure you make some dives even if you're not seeing anything from the surface.

Do you dive out of a kayak or from shore? I've got a few good spots in Destin, but you will need a kayak to get there.

3mb and sikes are indeed probably holding them right now. Keep an eye on the kayak section for sheepshead reports, they should be coming in right now and peak in early march.

I've never made it over to destin but after all the cover you mentioned, I might be making a trip that way.

It all depends on the weather and what area I'm diving whether I'm using a boat or my kayak. I like the kayak because it is easy to load up and go, but I usually beach it and then dive on a boat dock or something like that. It is really easy for me to launch my boat as it is stored on the base and I can dump it and go.

So far I have been to the boat docks near perdido, Bob Sikes( but I have to stay so far from the fishing pier there), three mile bridge(gulf breeze side).

I usually just wait until around March when the swarms come into the bay, its super fun. Tried last weekend and the water was a little too cold for me haha.

It's against the law to spearfish at Pickens or Mc crey. Or any state or federal parks.
