Went out to the beach side for 3 hours with some live shrimp. Caught 1 sheepshead @ 18 inches. Talked to some of the winter warriors out their and one guy said he caught 9 or 10 sheepshead on fiddler crabs. So next time I am going out to the gulf side to see what is biting.

It's a hit or miss on what bait they will hit best on each day, best bet is to take about a dozen or 2 of crabs and shrimp and figure out from there

I like Fiddler Crabs the best and just keep the in my jacket pocket as I go from one piling to the next. If you bring your hook up empty you're in the right spot..!

How big we're the shrimp and were you fishing them whole/live? I've had good luck on fresh dead pieces of larger Shrimp. Again, it's just what they want that day.

Always have a bubbler and I switched the batteries out for new ones and checked the hose line to make sure it was bubbling.

It's okay because it happened at tight lines so they might of not gotten any fresh shrimp in yet. Better when you get them fresh.
