    Sheep Herder Jigs

    Maybe coming to a pier near you in the near future. 1st batch still need a little quality time in the oven to cure the powder paint. These are 1/2oz in light brown with a 1/0 offset octopus hook. Closest color I could come up with to try to match the fiddler crabs I've used from bait shops. These are real popular amongst sheepshead fishermen in Florida. Not sure how they will do in Bama saltwater.

    I'm buying at the casino buffet Saturday night. We have to share a plate though.

    This site says fiddlers, but also "mussels, clams, shrimp and other crabs". Might have to get some if the pier is open when the sheepies start biting.

    Most people tip them with fiddler crabs. I'm going to try that and maybe sandfleas, oysters and shrimp.
