Sheepshead Spawn in Port Royal Sound

Capt. Rick Percy
February 9, 2012
Beaufort - Saltwater Fishing Report

Lots of folks in the Beaufort area have been targeting Sheepshead the last several weeks. The bigger fish are in the sound spawning, and are being taken off the bridges and other piling structure. Fiddler crabs are a good bait, but a local tells me oysters are really the secret bait of choice. Drop them to the bottom, and slowly lift a foot or two. If you feel any resistance at all, set the hook. These fish are very light biters, and can be tough to catch. They also are excellent table fare, and put up a great fight on the line.

Beaufort Fishing Forecast:

Redfish should remain steady for the next several weeks, with an occasional trout thrown in if our water temps stay in the 50's.
