Postby dutchman123 » Wed Apr 06, 2011 10:24 am

Hello;

My zone is say Ft. Fierce inlet to Sailfish Point for catching pinfish or pilchard in the river. How do I?

Pilchards are usually spotted by sight in the water, on the surface, or deeper in the water column using a sounder. Once located, you can either use a sabiki or cast net.

Pinfish are usually found over grass flats 2-6 feet deep or deeper. Anchor or slow drift, and chum. I use "hair hooks" (extra small long shank hooks) tipped with tiny pieces of shrimp. You may want to use a small split-shot weight to keep your bait near the bottom.

Good luck :thumbsup:

Have you ever tried chumming for them. If not you should try Baitmaker its awesome at attracting bait-fish. You can either throw it out like you are feeding the fish and then cast of them or ball it up drop it down and sabiki on top of it.
