Sheepshead have started to get thick around the jetties and bridges in and around the local passes to the Gulf.  Try using live shrimp, fidler crabs, and oysters to catch them.  If the water is clear, try down sizing your leaders to 12-15 fluorocarbon.  Use either a drop rig or a carolina style rig with a small #1-1/0 circle hook.  Tide doesn't seem to matter too much for a better bite, but we usually try to plan our trip around a slack tide, just because it's easier to chum, hold up around pilings, and feel that finicky bite.  We fished this past weekend and caught 20 in about two hrs.  Not a lot of real big fish, but great eating size.  The bite should continue through this month, so get it while you can!!
