    Got out again today out of Pineland. The bait is still strong. You do have to chum heavy in order to get the white bait to come in. Plenty of threadfins and they did just fine in the live well all day. Temp was around 77 degrees all day......plenty of pins as well.

    I personally use corn meal mixed with canned mackerel, mix it up in a plastic bag until a thick paste consistency, then toss large marble size chunks until you see em flashing around.

    I use pop-top 5.5oz cans of Twin Pet Cat Food with Salmon. Seems to work fine and is only $0.30 per can.

    You can find pins around there right now, I havent chumed really for white bait cause I go out to the mouth for them out by the causeway and just follow the birds. I might be out near 41 bridge this week and I will let you know

    5/26/2012. There are a good number of small Balao (probably 16 count) on the beach off of Venice. I put three dozen in my basket over the span of 45 minutes by walking the beach and throwing a 10 ft pichard net to passing schools. Did not have to chum to attract them.

    White Bait everywhere on all flats! Threadfins scattered off the beaches because of this nasty wind we have had.

    i went to span c of the causeway and did not catch anything but a leatherjack.... and i went to picnic island on the side you see when coming from rumrunners or the river if you follow that channel, the tripods and a few other places and only seemed to get about 1 and a half dozen greenbacks and maybe a dozen pins... this took a long time even considering the fact i tried chumming for larger pins in some areas around 5-6 feet deep and didnt get anything and even on the side of picnic island i was talking about... any where abouts of the bait or anything i could do to do better or new places to go?
