View Full Version : Sheepshead in late October?

I had fun targeting sheepshead this summer on relatively shallow (4-7 feet deep) structure in the Pamlico Sound not far off Ocracoke.

I'll be back the third week of October and am wondering if I can still expect them to be in similar locations, or do they move to deeper spots or offshore as the water cools? I'm not familiar with their seasonal habits. Anyone know the answer?

Also, wondering if I'llstill be able to find fiddler crabs or sand fleas (which is what I used for bait) in late fall on the OBX?

Just from what I have seen NO.... Although I'd never say never to anything when it comes to fishing.... :D
