    Cool the sheepies are here

    went out today in my canoe. game plan was to get some crabs and target sheepies in new pass. well got late start due to the car breaking down. finally got on the water around 10:30. went to get some crabs found plenty. first cast got a 18 inch monster. second cast lands a 16 incher. ended up with nine fat sheepies. the fish more than made up for the car breaking down in the morning

    Great report. What kind of crabs were you using- mole crabs? Where did you find them?

    Crabs work for sheep? I've been seeing them all over the oyster beds smaller ones also saw one under the dock in my canal. And nice job on the catches.

    With fiddlers or mole crabs you don't have to deal with so many of the "trash fish" that go for shrimp.

    actually the crabs are called mud crabs. they look like stone crabs but are not. turning over the oysters is how you find them. if the legs are striped they are stones so you gotta release them. i have found they work better than fiddlers and moles. sheepies tend to hold them in longer and swim off with them.
