Whats the deal with Pinfish?
I can catch a castnet full of pinfish each time I head out of Matheson. What's the forum's opinion on pinfish as bait? Are pinfish popular only with select species? Read online that if there is an abundance of other bait, I guess better bait, the fish will pass it right by. The kind of been my experience with them. Throw a nice live one down on a bigger rod, forget about, and after fishing that spot pull it back up to find a perfectly healthy pinfish. I have on a occasion caught big Grey snapper that way. Maybe they are hooked wrong or on the wrong rig. I would love to hear what others think of pinfish as a bait, and maybe a suggestion or two on how to better use them to catch fish. Thanks in advance for all insite, advise, and opinions.
