Caught a flock today, somewhere around thirty, and kept four for the table. Most were in the lb. and half range with the two in the photo going 2 lbs 8 oz. and 4 lbs 10 oz. Hookup ratio was approx. 50% using fiddlers. Can't fish anywhere without a pup getting in the way.

Yes sir, sheep will be just fine on the dinner table. Congrats on a great day in the outdoors.
I bathed the two smaller ones in olive oil and lemon juice and stuffed them with lemon wedges and grilled them over charcoal. No leftovers.
I'm going to drift one of your flies over the rocks and try to catch one that showed no interest in my offerings yesterday.

Thanks for the info on the hooks. I have never targeted the sheepies exclusively but I hear they have one subtle bite. Going to give them a better go this summer hopefully.

Need to try those as bait in the areas I fish some times. See them all the time and I am sure the drum are feeding on them.
Some will claim these are some of the best drum baits. I've cleaned several that had them in their stomach and I found the largest crusher claw I've ever seen in a drum.
For sheepshead people usually remove the crusher claw and insert the hook into the joint at the body where the claw was removed.

Maybe for puppies. For old drum it's hard to be half a big ol blue crab.
