    Hi All. Been a while since I checked in. I started a new series of videos on chunking bunker for striped bass. This is part-1 which is fairly short and covers rigs, tackle, and storing bunker. I hope to have part-2 done before too long and it will cover what happens when you get out onto the beach.

    I fish the Long Island Sound and I have always had the problem of finding where to fish. I usually fish the bunker schools but this year I am having trouble finding them and I want to learn more about finding spots so that I can find my own. I know people say to find structure, but what does...

    I could swear I've seen some body (probably Roc) post that braided line isn't always so good for bait and fish finder rigs. I've never done much bait fishing using braid, but I do know the difference it makes for casting distance. Does anybody remember that thread? Does anybody have any...

    I had a thought that I wanted to get some of the more experienced guys opinion on. Do any of you use a chum grinder to set up your chunk baits? I was thinking of getting a grinder but if setting out chunks is a better idea let me know. My thought is that it wouldnt hurt but help bring the...

    Hello, I've searched the site on this topic but could not find a clear answer. Just wanted to know how long do you wait before you set the hook while chunking mack or using clams. Lately I've been loosing fish using j hooks and letting the fish take out line for 3 to 5 secs and then trying to...

    Hello everyone. I was born in Cape Elizabeth and moved to OR when I was 8. I'm finally getting a change to get back to that beautiful state on June 19th for a couple weeks, staying at Old Orchard Beach. I've been reading the threads on this site religously for the last three months in...

    Hello, I am new to the area and plan on fishing around West Point / Cornwall area over the next few weeks. This is a little different from Iowa!!!!! I am in the army and don't have as much time as I would like to fish and I am a little unclear about where to start. I have some questions about...

    There are a lot of questions below. Thanks for any suggestions you may be able to offer! I am fairly new to striper fishing and have mostly trolled for them in the Chesapeake Bay over the past 3 years. I would like to spend more time fishing the Raritan Bay this year. I bought a new boat...

    Hey all. I've been lurking here for a tad and wanted to officially say hello and ask my first of undoubtedly many stupid questions. I've been trying to figure out what you guys are talking about in many of these threads and the only thing I think I see is that I'm somewhere REEL close to a...

    Well got up and left the house at 3am to fish Boston Harbor and that wasn't enough so I went out again with a friend on his boat at 7:30pm. We spent a good 15 hours on the water yesterday. Chunking pogies and mackerel produced a few boatside bass & blues and two hefty runs which were lost just...

    I want a strictly chunking set-up which i can get some distance with (not record breaking or anything). Something durable and that will require relatively little maintenance. I rinse my reels with fresh water after each trip and try not to dump my reel into the sand, but I don't take my reels...

    I had good success this fall using bunker that I would buy at a tackle shop, but I would sometimes rather avoid the trip to the tackle shop. There's a number of fresh fish stores in my area. What do you think that is normally sold in local fish stores would work just as good as bunker? They...

    What do you think would make a more ideal set-up for fishing bunker etc. and fish finders in the surf for stripers? I'm thinking of 2 options. One is using one of my father's old salmon trolling reels (a Penn 309) and matching it with a 10 heavy or 12 foot MH okuma solaris surf casting rod...

    Hey everybody, I'm pretty new to striper fishing but i've been trying to learn. I've also been reading all of the posts here and they're all really helpful. Anyway, HERE'S MY QUESTION. Everyone where I'm fishing tells me I need to chunk this, or chunk that (menhaden, mackerel, etc)...
