This is going to be one of those unique years with crazy weather and challenges.
Since conditions are different, we need to respond in a different way. I was one of the first guides to start fishing whitebait minnows around here back in the early ‘80s. I had a few friends, originally also from St. Petersburg, that understood how to utilize minnows over on Pine Island, but I had the north side of the Harbor to myself — until my friend Capt. Scott Moore came down about 1983, I think. We had the time of our lives back then. For whatever reasons, our minnows have not shown up around here so far this year. They could still come, but who knows? So, we all need to learn other ways to fish. Lures, pinfish, cut bait and shrimp all work just not as easy and can be just as effective. We all got spoiled, and now it’s time to relearn how to fish other styles again.
