NOTE: Fish are not frequently biting chunk bait like Herring or Clam. You may have a bit of luck if it is drifted with a balloon or bobber, but the guys standing there with chunks on the bottom are doing just that, standing there.

Fish are being caught on poppers in some instances, but I personally have yet to hook up using my favorite technique, topwater. Storm's and other similar swimbaits are accounting for most catches. Other things to use are Charlie Graves and other tins, rattling "rat-l-trap" lures like the Gag's Mr. Bunker, Lucky Craft Live Pointer Lures, and Rapala suspending jerkbaits. Anything with a Herring like pattern is sure to catch!
