Get ready to fish for Sheepshead with Captain Miles this March

Updated: Mar 18

The Hilton Head fishing season is heating up, with March expecting to bring an exceptional amount of sheepshead fish. Captain Miles Altman of Bayrunner Fishing Charters told Island Events, “Having fished for everything from bream in small ponds to blue marlin in the deep blue of the Gulf Stream, I can say with confidence that one fishery in particular always shines this month, and it’s near the top of my favorites: Sheepshead.”

Sheepshead are a common North American marine species that can be identified by five or six dark bars on the side of the body over a gray background. “They can be caught year-round in our local Hilton Head waters mainly around docks and bridges, structures that have an abundance of barnacle and oyster growth. Usually in late February and March, they migrate to our nearshore reefs,” said Capt. Miles.
