It may be chilly and occasionally drizzling, but keep an eye out for those warm Spring days. One of the more finicky but interesting fish caught this time of year are sheepshead.  They look similar to black drum with a grey hue and black stripes but have key dorsal and fin features that set them apart.  Sheepshead feed on crustaceans and bivalves off of the Folly Pier pilings using their human-like teeth.  If the water is clear enough, you can spot sheepshead going from pilling to pilling looking for a tasty barnacle or crab.  In addition, they prefer calm seas as it is easier for them to feed. When targeting sheepshead, fiddlers and clams are popular baits to use.  Just be sure to follow SCDNR’s rule that circle hooks are required when fishing for sheepshead.
