Finding Live Bait Around Pine Island

Pinfish and greenbacks are so common right now that one throw of your cast net in the right area is all you'll need for an entire day of fishing.  The thick grass flats on the north sides of the island are crawling with these guys right now.  We found the ones in the photo just off the oyster bars on the east side of Jug Creek at low tide yesterday.  They went on to feed a couple dozen small snook in the creeks south of Burnt Store Bar right after we dumped them in the livewell.  The cooler water hasn't slowed the snook down in the least so far.  Good news as we head towards winter.
