Looking to buy live pilchards

Hi need some help from the south crew in finding live bait. Im out of boca Raton and up our way there are no pilchards to be found. All the reports are that there down in Miami. If any one knows a reliable bait guy I would appreciate any help. I'm looking for 500 to 1000 baits for a yellowfin Bahamas trip.

    White bait used to show up in Boca around tax day and almost always was there by May 1st. The last 2-3 years white bait has been almost non-existent in Boca. Rains, Deerfield Beach dredging, and who knows what else have changed the habitat to a point where they may come thru, but haven't been lingering for any amount of time.
