I would not post techniques for these two and I got banned from sheepheads site because of it. Now I am far away and willing to share to a good group of folks like I have found here. To explain, I did not want to give away trade secrets just because thats how I made my living at the time.

First you start out with a PILE of chum. I'm talking abot 2 flats of fish, doesn't really mater what if it sinks and is not squid. Cuit up 3/4 of it small, like 4 pieces per fish. The rigs they are at are between 70 and 160'. Put your stern towards the rig. Chum two full handfulls of bait at the heaviest structured part of the rig you are able to stern up to. Loook at what you see. If you see MS's and lot's of them then fish it like you were chunkin' for tuna. Hide your hook, and freeline with no tension at all. At the bite, hit the throttle and the combined tension of the boat going away and the angler keeps those suckers from getting their head and getting you in the rig. This is something I came up with to help to fill a box out of Port A. It works, you may have to try several rigs to find the right stuation. If you work at it it will fill your box with some great eating fish.

Use fluoro and j hooks, circles are taboo for some reason. Bring a net also, gaffs lose more than they save. If they don't swarm right off go somewhere else. Hide your hooks! If u don't you WILL not get bit.
