Pinfish?

Postby jbuck501 » Thu Sep 24, 2009 1:50 pm

We were at Dania Pier the other evening using a Sabki tipped with squid and catching what I thought were bait sized snappers, 3" long or so. Could these have been pinfish? If so, do they make good bait off the pier? I was checking out a site that had pics of different baitfish, what we were catching looked the same. I do not remember if they had a spot behind the head or not but body, color and stripes match.

My bet is you were catching grunts off Dania, not pins. I've rarely seen pinfish off the oceanside piers. Pins usually like grassy, calm shallow areas.

I think you are correct, they had a longer nose then the pic of the pinfish and i do not remember any spots on them. Thank you

yall have them over there , just normaly there caught with a small hook on shrimp , just drop a #1 hook with dead shrimp by the pileing on the pier and you should get one or two of them , but when you use them for bait put a rubber band on there tail and they keep grunting . but any how the pics of the fishin i posted can be found here
