Common Names

Spanish porgy, Shiner, Sargo, Chopo sina


Habitat & Behaviour

Pinfish can be found on rocky bottoms or near structures in the water, such as docks, piers or in vegetated areas. As the temperatures drop these fish recede to deeper waters until the summer returns. 

Natural Prey

Pinfish are omnivorous and feed on a combination of small invertebrates and plants.

Handling Tips

Very sharp little fish. Extremely sharp spine by the anal fin and sharp by the pectoral fins by the gill plate – take your hand wrap it around the line and slowly take your hand down so you lay the spikes down to get a hold of it.
