Whacked and stacked the Sheepshead today. Small bits of shrimp on a #8 hook with one split shot fished down in the rip rap was lights out. I had 37 by the time I quit. No one else getting much and I think its due to using heavy rods and reels and line, hooks and sinkers. 

I was tightlining 12 pound test line on a light 8 foot rod. You had to feel the light tap and set the hook fast. 

Water still cool 60 but now the weather seems to have turned for better.
