Default Florida Sheepshead Fishing

While on vacation in Marco Island, FL I needed to spend some time chasing Sheepshead in the inland waterways. This species is a blast to sight fish. Paddling around to docks and pilings searching for them, once you find one a well placed free-lined shrimp is hard for them to pass up!

Looks like a lot of fun.

The sheepshead I've caught were out of Long Beach, CA and have completely different coloring compared to those in Florida.

It seems like it would be a pretty awesome place to live for a few years!

Wow, that's some crazy coloring! We always refer to Freshwater Drum as Sheepshead in the north.

Favorite fish to catch in Florida. They love oyster beds. Gotta set the hook hard cuz of their hard mouths...

They are a blast! Last year was my first time targeting them and they kept stealing my bait. I switched over to a 1/0 Circle hook and that was the ticket for me. The hook always landed in the corner of their bony mouth and missed all of their human like teeth.

Haha yes they are! Don't want to get your fingers too close to that mouth.
