Flagler Sportfishing Club

I never fished for sheepshead in my life. In fact I have no interest in Sheepshead at all since it’s usually to cold for me. That all changed when I received an invitation from a good friend and member to fish our January Sheepshead tournament. After almost 4 months of house rebuilding I was chomping at the bit to get back on the water. Now I had a real problem? How do you catch sheepshead? I had not a clue, so I turned to some of our club experts. Captain Jimmy Brittian gave me some guidance in tying a sheepshead rig and calls to a couple of other members got me some spots and the baits. Tournament day dawned cold, and a nice day turned a little colder as the cloud rolled in late morning, water temps around 50 degrees made the fishing tough so I was pretty happy when 2PM rolled around and we headed to the weigh in. There we met some 35 to 40 other hardy souls with not a lot of fish but a lot of joking and laughter as we compared how many layers of clothes we had on. It turned into a really fun tournament with a lot of more...

All of that brings me to what this club is all about. Learning to be better anglers, developing friendships, and having fun. I think we lose sight of that in the whirlwind world we live in today but there are times we must step back smell the roses and go fishing. Please make sure you take advantage of everything this club has to offer and I look forward to seeing you all on the water. Oh yes, I did catch a sheepshead.
Tight Lines!
Captain Chuck Gleichmann, President
