It’s almost BIG sheepshead time!

Best Sheepshead Rig Around Structure [VIDEO]
My go-to rig for catching sheepshead around structure is a dropper rig.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Ande Monofilament Leader Line, 20#
- Gamakatsu Circle Hooks, 2/0
- Teardrop Weight (weight will vary by conditions)
This rig is made up of two loop knots, one for the weight and one for the hook.
Take the tag end of the leader line and tie a non-slip loop knot.
Slide the loop through the eye of the weight, wrap around the weight, and pull tight.
Go 20 to 25 inches away from the weight up the leader line then make another loop knot (but don’t make the loop as big as you did for the weight).
Put the loop through the eye of the hook, wrap around the hook, and pull tight.
You’ve got a sheepshead dropper rig!
