Might be heading out of manasquan inlet tomorrow if all goes well for some stripers/blues. Anyone see or hear of any pods of bait around? Saw them 2 wks ago while fishing the p.p. elsk tournament with loads of jumbo blues in them. Thank you!

We ran into two big pods of bunker last Friday evening, but nothing was on them. We were right out in front of the Shark River inlet.

A little far for you but for those out of Cape May some pretty good schools of medium sized bunker 180 degrees out of the inlet 3-5 miles on the way to McCries.

The Delaware Bay is loaded with bunker. We snagged 20 of them for striper bait the other day.

There were herring (6 to 9) inches pods at EPH shoal at the latter part of last week. Use a sabriki shrimp rig to get them.

We were not striper fishing. I freeze them for the fall. There will be times when I can't get fresh bunker in the fall so I use frozen bunker. I have been busy with the weakfish and flounder right now. ;)

sounds fun Steve, I got your email, I'll get back to you tomorrow, I ran across a couple of pods of bunker the other day in the bay, I saw a big fish come up after them....then snagged a couple and live lined them, but didn't get anything. it was pretty cool seeing them though!
