Paul Matthews, a St. Petersburg local who works for Don’s Dock was slamming the sheepshead and mangrove snapper the past few days from their dock at the east end of the boardwalk. He was using live shrimp weighted to the bottom with great success. Ray Palmer, from Clearwater, was also catching nice sheepshead from the middle of the north jetty of Johns Pass using pieces of shrimp weighted to the bottom along the rocks of the jetty. Larry Harrington, from Indiana, was catching flounder and live shrimp from the east end of the north Jetty of Johns Pass. Mr. Harrington said that the dead shrimp was working best for the flounder and he also caught a few bonnet head sharks while fishing for the flounder.
