Recently read about fishermen in Texas and La. using live pinfish for speck bait. They claim that it's the absolute best bait for large trout, outfishing all other baits, including live shrimp. Don't believe I've ever seen anyone using pinfish around here. Has anyone tried them? Thinking you could take some small hooks out to the pier, catch a few pins, and float them out in the wash under a popping cork. They, (the pinfish), would certainly be easier and cheaper to fish with than live shrimp. Anyway think I'll give it a try next time out.
