"Live Bait Chumming" - Key West, Fl

On the Atlantic side of the key chain, in the deep waters of the Gulf Stream, oceanic free swimming (pelagic) species roam over a pretty featureless ocean. In these areas bait congregates around almost any flotsam. When fishing for some of the pelagic, filling the bait well could be the most important part of your day.   While only a small percentage of the bait is actually used on the hook, the majority is used in a technique called live bait chumming.  The idea being if you could setup your boat as a natural feeding station, you can attract life up the food chain.
