I am only a noob myself but in my neck of the woods the bunker are large and plentiful this time of year. (Although I trying to fish hardware not bait but the bunker patterns are getting the most interest just not hooking up )

all depends whear you are fishing, bait is moveing and schooling for the trip out now...mullets, peanut bunker, spearing, sand eels,porgies....you can use most anything cut, or live.. the same things you use in june. ----its more of getting to find the fish, then what bait you use....i use lures ..and only fish eels myself. finding the fish moveing if your not fishing the surf or montauk. can be the hole key to catching this time of year. oct, nov. if you fish bays and sound. its harder. its finding them moveing!!!!!!!

if you have bunker still in back waters this time of year or any, and thay get pushed..chased, get your self a 7' spin outfit with some back bone, 25. or 30 class, spool it with 25 lb mono , or 30 braid power-pro, with a 10' shock leader at the end of the braid, 25 mono will work tied with a albrite. and a snap swivel on the end.....i use lordship jr. or a atom40. a gibbs deep danny allso. 1 1/2 to 3 oz the large lures!!!! in the right colors...cast and swimmed on the edge of bunker schools ---will get hits all the time. cast on the edges of the schools. the bass seem to hold back looking for the bunker hit by blue fish,so on. thay will not compete with blue fish for a meal most of the time. edge angeling.com has all the things you need. ...............billy

remember fish the wood swimmers slow! to med, you may want to pinch the barbs on the hooks down and change the rear treble to a salmon siwash, 4/0 or so. ------

It's the same as you would any other time but, they are not on top. You have to fish middle to low depth. Your bait or lures have to be designed for that. They are going to be moving slower. Just my opinion.
