If the tides are right you could just jig for it in the bay before departing.

There is none for sale in Newport, but as has been mentioned, you can go jig it up out of the bay either early the morning of departure, or go out the evening before.

How many fish do you need and how long will it take to jig for them?

Went fishing with live bait two weeks ago out of the CR and we had 300-400 fish. Not sure if that was normal, but we had plenty of bait (good thing because they were sick when we got them and lost 100+ on the way out..).

Depending on the size of your tank you may have had too many to keep them lively. Circulation plays a big part in the equation also.
I have a 27 gal. and figure that 200 is the max. for me. It has a Bait Sentry 800 pump. I will bump the pump to a 1000 in the off season to improve circulation. Hope this helps.
