Maybe, I think they're eating periwinkles and fiddlers though, like I said, they're mixed in with red and black drum tailing on grass flats. I've gotten several of them to eat a fly in that situation, but it's hard to get a clean hookset. Mean fighters when they've got space to play with and I'm not using medium heavy spinning gear with a locked down drag.Probably messin around in the oyster rocks. It would be hard to consistently catch them out their tho.
They will travel upstream to some degree in the hotter months, but they will still occupy structure in relatively open water. You can find a few in brackish areas, but you generally won't find too many of them in skinny creek water like you will a trout or redfish. I have cast netted a few juveniles in creeks and marinas, but that is because they are fresh spawn. Mature sheeps (meat fish) will tend to crowd up more in tidal areas with higher salinity. Usually look for them on structure near deeper water: a bridge over the ICW, an ocean pier, a port wall, or a jetty on the backside of a barrier island.How far "inland" do the Sheepshead travel. Is it better to fish closer to the inlets or do they travel pretty far "upstream" in the sounds?
