Almost all the nearshore wrecks hold decent size sheepies however most of the larger ones come from the pylons of the CBBT.

boat

So most are really caught by boat and the few occasional smaller ones are caught near jetties and piers.

nice

That is kind of where I figured they would be with all that open water and all those jetties around there. Do you think anyone around here specifically targets them? Not too many people on the board talk about them but I think they taste better than most of the drum family fishies(well depending on how they are cooked)
