I would say its a matter of where your fishing. If the bottom is sandy I would go clams, if rocks I like bunker. Having said that I fish NY. and mostly rocky areas. Ive been most productive with bunker. But other guys especially Jersey and Rhode island guys swear by clams. Clams and worms are always a good bet for early to late spring for some reason.
I hope some of the Jersey guys chime in on this one here.
