I was fishing for flounder on sat near great eag and had pretty good action on the flounder but the keeper ratio was very low. We ended the day wirh 3 keepers. The highlight of the day was when someone called out about a large school of blues off of longport and when we arivied it was a load of bunker be invaded by large blues and bass. Man was that an awesome site to see in the middle of the afternoon. I had 3 good chances of hooking up but failed all 3 times. The 1st time I put a large strip of bumker and it got hammered but the fish missed the hook. My 2nd try was to liveline the bunker and after about 1 min. the bunker got bit in half and the blue the wrong half. The 3rd time I felt the hit and I gave the fish about 15 to 20 seconds on free spool set the hook and missed the fish. When I got my bunker back it was all scratched up from a bass. So what is the proper way to fish a school of bunker and catch?
