Default Re: Live Well Usage

Bait species vary with the season.... First it's mackerel... if they are scarce polock or cunners will suffice, eels dont need to be kept in a live well, unless your running traps and purging them as you fish....

In by gone years the pogies showed after the mackerel, last year we had them for a few days before they left....

Late summer, the herring(sea herring) start showing over the mud bottom with schools of small whiting and mud hake, all these are seviceable baits.... stripers eat the whole time they are here... find a food sorce and keep it alive!
