Welcome to our Sheepshead Fishing Home Page

Sheepshead are a popular fish to catch inshore or near shore. They usually average 1 to 2 pounds inshore and can grow up to 8 pounds and sometimes larger offshore. It is more common for anglers to target these fish inshore as they can be found in many areas throughout the bays.


Sheepshead are mostly found inshore around bridges, docks and piers.  The barnacle encrusted pilings hold tons of sheepshead during the high tide.  Sheepshead can also be found in the passes, along the mangrove-lined shorelines, along jetties, in the surf and offshore on the reefs and wrecks when they spawn.
