This time of year we get a lot of questions about how to hook different baits for sheepshead particularly sandfleas and fiddler crabs. Tyler helped me put together a short video with a couple tips for springtime sheepshead. I think these short "how to" videos may help out with things like knots, rigging, ect... so let me know if there might be a subject that you would be interested in! Thanks, Matt

Matt / Tyler

Nice video, I have hook them skrimps all kind of ways and still get robbed like I'm giving away free gold at times. Maybe you will share what is the secret to increase hook up ratio?

Great tips on where to use different baits. :thumbup:

A fishing buddy and I recently discussed what is the best rod n reel combo to use to target these crafty bandits. Something light, sensitive but with the needed backbone to horse them in. What do the Hot Spots Fishing Charters Captains use? Line and rigging techniques etc?

Keep the informative videos a coming Matt & Tyler!

Simple fact is your gonna lose bait when you are sheepshead fishing... Bring plenty of bait when you go and use as small enough hook your comfortable with. We use a #4 eagle claw model 084A J-hook or an owner #4 Gorilla lite.

As far as rods go we dont have a specific rod we use to target them. Id say a good one to go with would be a medium 7' or 7'2" shimano rod and a 3000 sized reel and 10-15 lb braid. I like a 15-20lb floro leader also.

Hope this helps!!

Awesome video.

An idea for a future video might be targeting flounder on rod & reel... retrieving method, best bets on baits/lures, times, temps, etc..

Of course it's cobia season too... maybe a "how to" on spotting, favorite baits, & equipment needed?

Just suggestions
