RE: Late Spring 2016 Sheepshead primer
I'll echo what OT says about were to find them.... My spot for them is warm, slow current, almost an almost exclusively clay bottom. The stretch I catch them is also shallow, I would be surprised if its more than 4 feet were I catch them. As OT says this type habitat keeps them in the 2-4 pound range.

Love the fight and love the iridescent colours on a sunny day.

My PB was 11 pounds: http://ontarioshorefishing.com/forum/Thr...-of-Quinte

Gobies are also a favourite snack for smallmouth bass, hence the lure.

With the proliferation of Gobies in the great lakes and the St. Lawrence it has become a staple food source for many piscavores (fish eating fish). Like FF says large/small bass seemed to target them aggressively (an easy snack?). Looks like Drum are into them as well.

Some people have indicated that they have started an upward trend of int he size of large/small mouth bass in the region.
