Sunday morning, Tim and I collected mud crabs from St. Pete Beach, fiddler crabs and shrimp from Gulf to Bay Bait and Tackle, and mussels and clams from Publix. We were determined to catch some big sheepshead. Weather conditions were perfect, upper 70’s with a light breeze and an incoming tide.
We did manage one big sheepie, along with a whole bunch of little ones. Also joining the party were:
-A Bonnethead Shark
-Black Sea Bass
Action remained fairly steady throughout the day, but the big sheepshead remained elusive. We left the Blind Pass Marina area late in the afternoon, and it seemed every piling was covered with 10 to 15 inch sheepshead.
