Best bet for netting pilchards?

Might seem like a crazy question but whats the best way to go about netting pilchards around chokoloskee. I have been fishing pine island for about 9 or 10 years and have always had good luck chumming grass flats. With the lack of many open grass flats around chokoloskee. Whats my best bet? I Have have tried a few markers but its been hit or miss.i have found treadfin big and small but decent sized pilchards have eluded me. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

    check out around the beaches. little ones and bigger ones around the islands. This time of year dont get too narrow sited on pilchards and target Finger Mullet in the same way, they get pretty thick. I use a quarter inch net the tiny bait schools are all over
