Ft. De Soto Whitebait

I have been able to find PLENTY of big green backs under the north bridge at the Skyway for tarpon and grouper, but have yet to find any smaller whitebaits for inshore fishing. Any tips or ideas for finding these flats candies?

    Nice bait along the beach this past wknd , we loaded up on the large ones for KOB this wknd at the skyway ... Also try the bridge off 54th ave south by the Don , found smaller bait while there ...

    do you catch the bait with a hook or a net and how do you keep them alive or do you use them dead for the kob

    The flat where the North pier starts is loaded.

    We use them alive , we load the wells up and then take the balance and put to a bucket to use for chum , tossing while slow trolling for the flash ... We placed 22nd overall this past kob , landed a 24.26 lb about 8am ...
