It`s Sheep Herding Time

Published January 19th, 2023 by Direefadmin

It`s Sheaphead catching time. Although D.I. Reef Monster is primarily an offshore fishing service, we love fishing for these tasty hard fighting fish. Being structure oriented, the Dauphin Island/ Alabama Gulf Coast area is surrounded by manmade structures that allow Sheep to flourish. Sheephead use their Austin Powers like teeth to crush barnacle off dock pilings, rig legs, jetty rocks, and seawalls. These fish are fairly easy to target, and do not require pricey specialized equipment or tackle. Most bait shops will have either live shrimp, dead shrimp, and even fiddler crabs. Some would argue over which baits actually works best, but we have found when they are ready to eat they are not picky. Whether you have a kayak, johnboat, or 31ft Catamaran they a great fish to target on your next Dauphin Island or Alabama Gulf Coast fishing trip. Reach out to us for more information on how to target and rigging options. Also, look into our half day nearshore option for your next charter if you would like to target some of these crazy fish.
