Default Re: Secrets to Livebaiting stripers

If i can't snag some mackeral in maine, and i'm forced to buy some frozen ones, can the balloon method still be utilized for chunking inorder to keep the bait off the bottom? I was thinking of a 3 ft flouro leader to an 8/0 gami octopus at the bussiness end, a barrel swivle to my braid, and tie the balloon to the swivle somehow? Also if i can get some live mackeral should i use a sinker slide on the balloon or tie it at a specific length up the line?
