Crystal River More Snapper and Sheepshead!

Got to reunite my dad with his old friend Tom he hasn't fished with in 20 years. Bite was slow but we still got alot of nice sheepshead and snapper several 20"+. We were getting ambushed by grunts on the bottom so we put our shrimp 3ft off the bottom to avoid them a little bit. Then we noticed the sheepshead were like 5-10ft off the bottom when I dropped the go pro down. We got some slowly dropping shrimp on light weight knocker rigs or single split shot. Much tougher bite than previous trips. Moved to the reef and got like 20 snapper 14"-20" and another 10 nice sheepshead. Still had another great day fishing about 30ft of water. Everything was on shrimp, I like the bigger shrimp to allow small fish to peck at it and wait for a sheepshead to finally commit to taking it. Had 1 monster sheep over 22" and extremely fat and my dad got his biggest snapper and first over 20".
