    I am only getting small net wrecker pilchards on the flats around weedon. Is anyone finding medium to large pilchards in the bay? I was getting mixed sizes before Irma, now the medium to large are gone.

    2 weeks ago Wesson and coffepot flats held 3 to 4 inch baits and were easy to catch. Today they were all tiny and I filled a bunch in my net.

    Fished last week out of the Anclote river, and couldn't find bait at howard park so I ran the beach in front of honeymoon island and didn't see much. I saw some pods on the finder about 1/2 mile out from hurricane pass and caught some nice threadfins. Didn't find any greenbacks until I hit the flats just inside hurricane pass, and they were mostly tiny but I got enough to fish with. Anyone having any luck with bait in the tarpon springs/dunedin area lately? Might be time to get out the pinfish traps, and buy shrimp.

    Has anyone been getting white bait at the skyway?

    All this warm weather has to have the fish and bait moving around. Any inshore bait in N. Pinellas yet?
