Read the March 25-27 Florida Sportsman Big Bend Fishing4Cast and learn about my ‘Super Secret Sheepshead Spot’

by on Mar.25, 2011, under FLORIDA'S BIG BEND AND EMERALD COAST

From this week’s online Florida Sportsman Fishng4Cast:

I promised last week that I’d write about rigging for sheepshead and Spanish mackerel. That follows later in this column, but first—a funny story:

Sheepshead fishing is fun, and when I was offered a ride to a friend’s “super secret sheepshead spot” and a chance to compete in the Gainesville Offshore Fishing Club’s Sheepshead Shootout, I was excited. I’ve caught my share of big female sheepshead, and a shot at them on an undisturbed rock off Horseshoe Beach was something I couldn’t refuse. And there was a whopping $100 prize at stake!

All I heard last week was a repeated refrain of “I hope we have this spot all to ourselves like we did last year.” I suggested we leave port early—just to be sure we’d be alone on the one-acre sized rockpile when we arrived. Not a chance!

All About Sheepshead- Catching, Cleaning, Cooking


Here’s an excerpt from The Saltwater Angler’s Guide’s  chapter, “It’s all about the fish…” To learn about other species, get the book by clicking on the link to Amazon.com on the right side of this page.

Sheepshead, found all along Florida’s west coast, are legendary bait stealers.  During most of the year, these small-mouthed fish inhabit coastal oyster and rock bars, dock pilings and rock jetties searching for their favorite prey–crustaceans, including small crabs, shrimp and even barnacles.  It’s these smaller fish that are very difficult to catch, as their ability to crush bait, swallow the meat, and spit out the exoskeleton (with the hook!) is unrivaled.  Small hooks and small baits, such as fiddler crabs and cut shrimp pieces, are the key to catching close-to-shore sheepshead.  Patience helps, too.  Learning to feel the signature bite of a sheepshead takes time, and you’ll likely miss a few before you get into their rhythm.  And, while the size limit on sheepshead is 12”, a fish that size yields very little meat upon cleaning.

It’s the bigger spawning sheepshead, usually found during the late winter or early spring, that excite gulf anglers.  These fish, found mostly in deeper water and around structures such as rock piles and old navigation markers, sometime reach weights of 10 pounds, or more.  When their spawning ritual begins, these big sheepshead will mill around the structure and seemingly eat any bait presented them.  Chumming with crushed crabs, oysters or shrimp heads will increase the feeding frenzy, but don’t over-chum.  They’re hungry, but they do get full!  As spawning fish are larger fish, their mouths are bigger and most anglers rely on whole live shrimp as bait.  A simple ‘knocker’ rig and a sturdy #2 hook is sufficient, but many anglers simply thread a shrimp, tail-first, onto a 3/8-oz jig head. The advent of braided line has certainly hurt the sheepshead population in the last few years, allowing anglers a better feel for what’s going on down below.  Many sheepshead ‘experts’ agree that you have to set the hook on a sheepshead BEFORE he bites, or you’ll miss the hook-up!

Sheepshead are delicious to eat (fried or grilled), but as difficult to clean as they are to catch.  Big boned and heavily scaled, the meat-to-total weight ratio of sheepshead is low (about 33% yield of meat is average), and most anglers opt for electric knives at the cleaning table. And, no matter how good the meat, cleaning the unrealistic legal limit is a chore.  Take what you can eat that night and NOT the 15-fish limit, remembering that big spawning sheepshead represent the future of the fishery.

Suwannee Fishing Report, March 20, 2011, from Capt. Les Flaherty

by on Mar.21, 2011, under Suwannee

Capt. Les Flaherty at Suwannee reports that trout are moving along the big bars at Lone Cabbage Reef, Tarpon Gap, Seven Brothers and Red Bank Reef.  Sheepshead have shown up, but are mostly smaller male fish.  Look for them around Hedemon and Red Bank.

With the moon at close perigee, this weekend should be a banner one for sheepshead anglers.  Take a look at my Big Bend Fishing4Cast for details.

There are plenty of sheepshead on Big Bend reefs, but be careful not to take more than you can eat!

‘Shiploads’ of Sheepshead Have Arrived at Steinhatchee!

by on Feb.20, 2011, under Steinhatchee

Based on a bunch of sheepshead that appeared at the Sea Hag Marina on Saturday, February 19, it looks like they’ve arrived!  This bunch was caught at the Steinhatchee Reef by anglers using live shrimp.


A boatload of anglers came back with a 'shipload' of sheepshead at Steinhatchee!

Homosassa Inshore Fishing Weekly Report from Capt. William Toney, December 27, 2010

by on Dec.27, 2010, under Chassahowitzka and Homosassa, Ozello to Crystal River

Not much to tell about this week except another brutal cold front. Things though will look up as the week ends with warm weather. Look for most of the fishing action to be in the same places as last week, the head waters of the rivers. Crystal Rivers Kings Bay will be the spot that has the most water to fish because of its large size. The numerous first magnitude springs will keep the water in the 60 to 70 degree range. Trout, redfish, blackdrum, sheepshead, mangrove snapper, ladyfish and jacks will all be in the bay to stay warm and alive. The best baits to use are D.O.A. shrimp, MirrOlure TT series plugs in the deep water and Gulp! tails. Live shrimp is also a great bait but call your favorite tackle shop ahead of your fishing trip to make sure the have them.

Another fun thing to harvest this time of year that does not involve a fishing pole is oysters. The very cold water has the oysters fat and juicy. The day before Christmas I took my nephew, daughter and wife out. All we caught was a sheepshead but we did collect around 3 dozen oysters in a open harvest area. That evening we grilled the sheepshead and oysters on a open fire. We had a great time and it was a fun way to spend the day without having to try to catch a bunch of fish. Check the FWC’s ( online ) open areas that are available for the harvest of shellfish before you collect oysters. Incoming hightide will be in the morning this weekend. Capt. William Toney www.homosassainshorefishing.com
