Got BAIT?

Recommended Posts

I just had to share this with everyone, in case some of you have not had the opportunity to see such a thing.

This is what the fall is like in Narragansett Bay, RI.

Wind and rough seas had me hiding the camera once we left the dock but it was an uneventful morning anyway.  But, just the same, check this out

BAIT

This is saltwater.  Those are Menheddan, also known as "Bunker".  Right now, they range from 1" to 4-5", and they school by size.  So cool to watch at the docks, one school of tiny ones will be coming one way and some 4 inchers coming straight at them and then they'll merge, very cool looking.  I'll be down there again later today and will get some better footage.

I watched and thought, "When's he gonna throw the cast net?"  Boy, I'll tell you there's no better bait for stripers than live peanut bunker.  Works pretty good for fluke, too!

Being that LI isn't too different or far from RI, I get to see those like that too.  It's cool to watch, and even more fun when the "snappers" (baby blues) boil 'em up and start a feeding frenzy.

Good stuff, LBH!

Yup, we don't call them Pogies till they are full grown.  BIG fertilizer business.  recent legislature has re established "off limits" areas to the per seine boats and this vid is the result.  Sometimes, being vocal can work.
