These pinfish fish pictures shown below are close up pictures showing you exactly what a pinfish looks like. Pinfish are caught in salt water or brine water, and are often used as bait for larger ocean fish. They are notorious bait stealers.

How to identify a pinfish? Some characteristics of the pinfish include a dark or black spot back from its eye, panfish, black vertical stripes, blueish colors, forked tail, and commonly used as bait to fish for larger fish. (Always remember when releasing fish to get them back into the water as soon as possible and not over/rough handling, so the fish do not die after being released. Just because the fish swims away does not mean it actually survived).
