    Fished Tuesday in the South Bay. Wound up with 36 spotties and 8 corvina over 3 hours. Was fishing off the Cays and saw some birds working. Went over to check it out and there was about 1/4 mile of tiny 1 inch bait pimpling the surface. Caught 8 corvina off the bait with some good spotties also. All fish caught on 1/4 oz and 3/8 oz jigheads and 4 inch swimbaits.

    What time of day were you out?
    I was out there sunrise-9am catching macs and spotties. The small fry were indeed boiling - looked like patches of frying oil on the surface.

    Always awesome when the corvina are schooled up. They will absolutely destroy a minijig with a fluketail
