Default Bait ID, Perdido Pass

My friend caught a cast net full of what I thought were HUGE LY's. What do you think these were? My foot is a size 12!!!

We think he had about 100 in one cast. My guess is the net full weighed 60-80 lbs. My friend is young and strong and could barely lift the net into the boat!
Do you think they are best whole or cut. A live fish is a big bait.

ask any ars and 9 out of 10 of them will tell you that's a menhaden and they just love them, whole, halved, or plain with a little salt.

Use them for bumping bottoms. What you dont use grind up for chum. Kings love them too

More specifically, that would be a Gulf Menhaden, Brevoortia patronus. Though there could have been Atlantic Menhaden, Brevoortia tyrannus, mixed in too. Use em for cut-bait, on the bottom, in the pass, ASAP!!!
