Even now waiting around on some funds to very clear up for boat parts so I made the decision to go pier fishing on the south end of the skyway pier. Snapper are Just about everywhere. If you had dollars or shrimp then you had fish. Apart from the few “secret giants” that strike my shrimp and quickly dove for really hard cover, fish were biting right on the bottom inside a few minutes of dropping down. I made the decision to use the big bag of shrimp that was at the bait store and over the future 9 hours I employed up almost all of them. The currents were favorable but I found the toughest portion of the journey getting tackle. I had a really hard time acquiring the right measurement hook to capture fish and not just feed them bait all night time. I finally found success on a bass assortment pack with an odd shaped hook. Circle hooks did not work at all. Guys future to us caught their restrict two times (sent mother residence with a cooler mid-journey) using slash greenies and measurement three J hooks. Caught a couple dozen smaller fish of all kinds and stored a few legal snappers for meal tonight.
Excellent enjoyment for kids and light-weight tackle.
