Here is a tutorial explaining how to rig for sheepshead utilizing very little hardware to prevent snagging on obstruction such as barnacles, oysters etc... The rig consist of a number 1 or 1/0 SSW Owner hook, a 20lb mono-filament leader tied directly to 10 -15lb braid via a Uni-knot and a size two or three split shot. The fixed sinker method will help prevent getting hung up. I like to use just enough lead to reach the bottom.
what about fishing for sheeps head round the citrus county area?
Thank you for the information, I now know the steps involved to making a perfect Sheepshead fishing rig.
You’re welcome! :)
This simple rig has worked for me on all quadrants of the state. 9 feet of water or less and it will work for you too.
