Kayak fishing bait thieves

When you kayak fish in Florida things want to steal your bait.  They range from crabs to little fish that can just destroy a soft plastic trailer in seconds.  You think you are getting hits but the reality is your hook is being cleaned off like a little kid munching corn on the cob.  Pinfish as shown here are one of the biggest offenders.  Funny thing is I once read that they are very good fried up but it must take a load of them for a meal.  They are also suppose to be very good bait but I'm a dedicated artificial lure guy so that is a no no for me.  This little guy was let go to eat another day.
