Where at in louisiana?I have never caught a sheepshead on the fly in Texas. I have made what seems like thousands of casts that appear to be perfect only to see the sheepie flee in abject terror of a 1" piece of fluff like it were a grenade going off in the water. These sheepies all speak ****-Ass:

If you make it to Louisiana give me a shout. I know where to find a few
Sounds like you were using your Montana nymphing/streamer swinging skills to use.The night picture ones were one of the coolest sheepie experiences I have had. They were siping micro crabs(smaller than a dime size) off or near the surface ona hard outgoing. You would cast above them with a small fly strip it a couple times to get some attention then dead drift it.
We caught like 10 than night doing this trick. Kinda felt like cheating, kinda felt like a small victory, haha.
