    Just wondering what seems to be working the best so far for those that are doing well. Live or chunk, drift or anchored? I really haven’t seen many caught although I’m sure they’re around.

    Hey guys, have any of you tried Berkley Gulp! Alive! Bloodworm/Sandworms? My main concern is in regards to their scent. Berkley has yet to let me down with their "Gulp! Alive!" products and I am curious if their line of worm plastics will pull the fish in as a regular worm would. I'm on a tight...

    I already have post up on the Penn boards, but thought i would check here to see if any locals could maybe help. This is a pretty common reel and I can't be be the only one who has had this problem... I own the Penn Fierce 2 6000 Live Liner and I popped it open today just to apply some grease...

  8. Hudson River
    Greetings, The last few years I've been out fishing with no success, and while my times afield were limited each year to one or two, the only real bait I used was chunk. I know there's different times and applications for all bait, but I was wondering if there's any place one can purchase live...

    Just wondering where you guys hook your live herring
  10. Hudson River
    Hello everybody, just trying to gauge how many of you run with a two hook or stinger rig when using live bait. I'm heading into my second season and have learned a ton through my mistakes (the best way to learn). My father and I ran all circle hooks last year with good success except hooking...

    Anybody ever floated a live herring under a bobber/balloon? Was thinking during low light or at night it might be a pretty good presentation. Just can't see putting the herring more than a couple ft down because you wouldn't be able to cast it. Where I fish we'd get there at 4-5am and never got...

    Anyone catch live herring around the TZ bridge area? I have tried swim baits and spoons but have never had a herring follow or even seen one. Not asking for any spots or anything, just want to know if people are catching them.
  15. West Virginia Stripers you hook them in the tail? I assume they eat them the same way they would a bunker, head first?
  16. New York
    What exactly is live lining? Are you drifting, anchored? What weight, barrel sinker or fish finder rig. I usually just fish the bottom and i am looking for other methods. Thanks in advance for any help...........

  18. The Striper Forum
    I've seen people talk about doing this for tuna, but has anyone tried it for stripers? Is it not necessary because the striper hooks aren't typically as big?
  19. Massachusetts
    I know that bait presentation can vary all over the map... but whats a general size for a mac/pogey/shad that I should stay under? I guess Macs are a little more slender so they can be longer, but pogeys and shad get pretty wide. Any advice/tips would be appreciated.
