Bait in the Carrabelle River

Postby bbb » April 30th, 2018, 2:47 pm

Anyone know what kind of bait was flipping in the river Saturday? They were flipping from the mouth to the No Wake zone and my sonar was showing clouds of bait but my 6' cast net yielded NADA.
Water was too dark to see more than a few inches below the surface.

No idea. I threw a net a few times as well. Nada.

The birds were having a field day though, whatever it was. I figured it was too tiny for me to catch any.

We were both wondering the same thing. We watched them flip all morning as we strolled down the Riverfront Festival. I was more interested in what was in the river than the festival :roll: .

LY's You need a really fast sinking net to catch them.

Went threw the river Monday and the dolphins were tearing them up whatever is was. Ended up catching bunch of grunts and red snapper off dog island reef. Water was slick as I’ve ever seen it. Went out 20 miles to the tower and saw a mako 18ft flats boat fishing out there. Got kind of choppy coming in I know they took a beating.

yep. they are tiny this time of year. 1/4" mesh net might get them but they are so small all they would be good for is chum.
