Was able to get out around 4pm to a suprisingly not to bad ocean. Set up out front of of boca inlet in 300 did 3 drifts with livies and had steady action every drift. Ended up with 5 Blackfin and a sail. Not bad for a couple hours just would like to find some bigger baits. Everything in the inlet or around the beach were small 3-4" sardines and Pilchards. Has anyone found any bigger baits around boca or are they all small?
Straight off the inlet in 300
Keeping busy while away from Florida
I am no pro at live baiting but when I do fish live bait I use 3/0-5/0 circle hooks depending on the size of the bait with 60lb flurocarbon . If I start getting cutoffs ill use the same size hooks on wire with a stinger. I usually hook the baits through the nose or chin unless there on the kite then ill hook them right below the dorsal fin. I hope this helps like i said im no pro at live baiting but this has always worked for me.
