Sheepshead will hang around underwater structures and bridge pilings making them easy to locate, however, you have to watch out for pesky pinfish that will nibble and steal your shrimp.
If you use the proper weight on your hook, you can swim your lure with the current and sweep it right into a sheepshead’s mouth.
Remember not to set the hook and let the fish run with it or you will lose your shrimp!
