Capt. Blanford finds dock pilings that are crusted with barnacles. Sheepshead and black drum tend to flock to these spots for breakfast. On this trip, he used fiddler crabs, which are versatile for both species. When fishing for sheepshead, he recommends holding the line against the rod above the reel to feel the nib that sheepshead are known for — using those buckteeth. He almost has the rod tip in the water, and as he felt a nudge on the line, he just lifts up the rod — barely setting the hook. With the sheepsheads' mouths being small and paired with teeth like a gerbil, these fish are sneaky at taking bait.
