Pilchards in Tampa Bay

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, been trying to figure out the live bait game here in Tampa Bay for a few months now. I've gotten the right cast net, gotten the right ingredients for chum, and been researching the best places to try to go. I've been very successful at catching threadfin off of channel markers but really would like to try to catch some pilchards. I have gone to the Hula Bay flats to try to catch them there but haven't had a ton of luck. Wondering if going up to the Culbreath Isles flats would be worthwhile, or if there were any better spots either around downtown Tampa or on the way to the Gandy Bridge area. 

Thanks for taking the time to read!
