Live Bunker

Live Bunker fishing if available will be our first approach with jigging a close second. When using live bunker it's a team effort in the snagging of the bait. The bait is controlled by the crew in an effort to be fair for all

Tackle

A conventional 6’-7’ rod with a reel loaded with 30 -40 pound test mono is best for fishing live bunker and jigs. A spinner with 20 -30 pound test matched with a stout 7’ rod is well suited for snagging bunker. This can also be used to fish the bunker with 30 pound test.
All tackle needed is sold on the boat: snags, rigs and jigs....
Rental Rods are available for $7 conventional and $12 Spinning
