Went to the spot after work today but first went to tight lines bait and tackle for some shrimp. Started fishing and asked the guy next which his is Jaime by the way recognized me from the forum. He was Co fisherman for the day by assisting with the drop net duty. First fish was 15" hooked immediately with a sight cast thrown in front of him with small shrimp. Second was the biggest of the trip at 21.25" weighing in at 5.45lbs. Not my best but is my third best. Third fish of the trip was 17" and put up a nice just like the second did. Last fish of the day was an under size and threw him back.

Can you tell me how do you rig for Sheepshead? I know everyone using different rigs and still successful. I use a Carolina Rig with 1 oz. sinker, 2'-20lbs leader and size 1 hook, but no success. Since I lost my baits so many times, thinking about using a circle hooks this time. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong and your thoughts about circle hooks (size & kind)? Thanks.

Everyone has their choice of brand such as eagle claw plain shank, mustad short shank, owner ssw or misquito, or gamagatsu bait hooks all work well. It's your choice on how much you want spend on a pack of hooks. I use owner and eagle claw.
