Default do anyone know how to live line bunker. an wuts the best time a place to use them for stripers.

want to know how to live line bunker for stripers. i know how to catch an live line them for blue fish, but i heard that in my area guys are live lining bunker an catching big stripers. my research an past experiences with bunk is that they come in the shallows at night. caught a few with a cast next throwing blind off the dock. but i wonder is the stripers follow the bunker in the shallows at night?. when fishing for blue fish i normally snack bunkers an live line them hooking them nearest to the tail because the blue's always hit the tail first. but stripers eat form the head first i read sumwhere. but where do i put the hooks an how much hooks on the fish. am thinking one on the back an one on the tail. mabe put a rubber band on the the tail with the 2nd hook. not quite sure. would like sum help plz. thanks

You don't need tandem hooks on stripers. One good hook will suffice. I place it in front of the dorsal fin. There's a chunk of meat between the dorsal fin and the skull, that's where you wanna go. The striper will always turn the bait and swallow it head first so there's no need for a hook on the tail. Manhassett Bay and Little Neck Bay are both productive at night just keep in mind that at night it's quiet and sound travels longer and faster, fish in shallow water spook easily so try and be stealthy.

For eels use a 6/0 octopus hook and come up from under the chin and out one of the eyes

Since there's bunker in the back i would stick with that as bait. You always want to offer what they're feeding on. I like to fish eels around rocks. Better place for eels is Ft. Totten and Kings Point Marine Acadamy. Check out the thread below for rigging eels.
