Crushed mussels scraped off a pier and/or garden snails might also be worth a try. Yum! Fresh whole shrimp seem to be mentioned the most for targeting sheephead.
They have those jaws and buck teeth for a reason.


FACTOID: all California Sheephead are born as pink females. Around 7-8 years they transition to male goats and develop their stripes. Setting minimum catch sizes has made populations mostly female, with negative effect on population sizes.
