There are some nuisance fish that steal your bait but make good cut bait for other fish. The first kind is called pinfish. They have vertical bars on their body; get to be about 6” long and have a black dot on each shoulder. They are great bait for other good fish. However the word we get is you need to be VERY hungry to enjoy eating a pinfish.
The other fish is a piggy perch. It also makes good cut bait. The coloring on their body is mottled and they grow to about 8” long. However these are good eating. It does take more than one to make a meal but they are easy to catch. They are also easy to identify as you can see in the attached picture.
Some days we have to work harder than others trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
