Sheepshead Bait?

Hey everyone, I've now seen two Charleston SC fishing guides who've used a mossy barnacle concoction as bait when fishing for sheep on the jetties. One was a guide I hired several years back and the other was a video on YouTube. In that video, there was a one-second clip of them scraping the bait off a rock somewhere...but it was too short to figure out where.

Is anyone familiar with this practice? Where would I go to find this bait? Once it cools off enough for the fiddlers to disappear, I would like to have a backup.

Here's a video of my last trip to the jetties looking for sheep. It's a 360 video...use your mouse to control where you're looking.
