I broke my PB sheepshead by several pounds today, and was very lucky to do so. My brothers and I have been doing very well on Jennette's Pier (OBX, NC) for the past two days. We are fishing fiddler crabs on spinning rods with light (15lb) leader, you use a light (1/4-3/8oz) weight and let the wind and current push the bait up under the pier to the sheepshead, it's a blast!

 

I hooked this fish late in the afternoon on the end of the pier, and somehow managed to keep it off of the pilings with 10lb braid, 15lb leader, and a medium action spinning rod. Mind you that fish has the capability to snap a flippin stick like a toothpick! Landing fish with a pier net is nerve-wracking and takes so long, but that part came together too. A once in a lifetime catch I suspect.
