    I'm going to be in the Boca/Delray area this weekend and was curious if anyone's had luck fishing the Intercoastal down there. The boat traffic can get thick, but some nights I'll sit by the edge and hear nonstop smacking. Probably just bait schooling, I'd imagine, but you never know. Supposed to be a few bumps according the the forecast I see, but I'd love to wet a line from the living room where I'm staying. Anything out there worth going for Sunshine State Swellies?? I'm used to catching mob associates on hot gabagool, but not sure if that works down yonder.

    If you can find finger mullet; free line them during dawn and dusk for Redfish, Snook or Seatrout (weakfish).....if that don't work. Everything will eat a shrimp under a bobber.......

    There used to be a company in Clearwater called Loves Lures. They had a simple grub with a lead head that would work for anything that swims. Not sure if they are still around. Rocketjok has it right, free line mullet or pinfish. I would also add these to your arsenal, Bass Assassin jerk baits with a lead head. I prefer plain white.

    These would be killer down there if you are throwing lures. I also saw a show one time and the guys were fishing in FL and they were throwing D.O.A soft minnow jigs and killing 'em! Good luck!!

    Right on guy, many thanks. Pinfish are usually a dime a dozen, so I'm going to let one roam at dusk to see who's hungry!
