pinfish? Hopefully get them tonight or saturday morning! (for science)

Hey everyone, I am trying to locate some pinfish. Not for fishing, but for science! I know they are hard to get this time of year and the baitshops that I have called do not have any.

My wife is a grad student at F.I.T. and needs to put some pinfish/grunts/pigfish in some new-large saltwater tanks. Adding these fish will help "cycle" the tank so she can later add Tarpon in them. (its a whole aquaculture thing that some may understand about nitrogen cycles and bacteria.

If anyone has an idea where to get some this weekend; or would even give us their left over live bait, I would greatly appreciate it. I will meet you at the ramp if needed.

Thanks in advance!
