Need help finding pilchards in the Blackwater Sound/ Key Largo area

My buddy and I are in the car right now heading down to key largo to do some b-day fishing. If anyone has advice on where we can find some bait to head offshore with it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    There is a guy that used to sell them down there from his boat and sells them to Ocean Reef. I am sure there are some guys on the forum who have bought from him. The ballyhoo are thick right now and so are the cigar minnows on the reef.
