    Hello Michael,

    I personally prefer the south because there are more piles to fish, thus more opportunities to catch. :)

    I am new to the area, I love fishing with my wife and 2 son, I saw your video about the grouper, which have a lot of wonderful information in it.
    I notice there is a north pier and a south pier. Which is good location to fish on the pier ? North or South. Which is better?

    Hello David,

    I prefer pinfish, and live jacks but it depends on what you are targeting.

    Hello Allan,

    When you hook your bait under the pectoral fin, and with enough slack, the fish will naturally swim downward toward the structure.

    Hey Michael

    At the expense of soundin like a true rookie…im curious what exactly u mean by “freeline” ? How will I get to the pile with no weight? If that is what u mean.

    Thank you, Allan

    Hey we fish the skyway quite a bit. I was wondering what the best live bait to use. We have been getting decent runs but no hook ups. Could you help us in getting more hook ups. Like hook size and weights for free lining.
