I hate to bug ya'll with this kind of question, but I'm going to anyway.

This August I'll be at Atlantic beach for a week. Rather then put some shrimp on a hook and hope something bites it I plan on being more selective this year.

So, what kind of fish are generally down there at that time of year? And how far out are they?

Thanks.

If you are looking for a real challenge you might want to try sheephead. They feed on barnacles which grow on rocks and wooden pilings or pretty much any hard surace they can attach themselves to. The Fort Macon jetties or any of the remaining piers are where you will be most likely fishing but with a boat your options are also places like bridge pilings , navigation aids, shell pads that support such structures as power line towers, pilings for whatever purpose and trees that have fallen into the water. Baits are any Crabs, sandfleas and live shrimp. AL
