having a real cold winter on long island and are not counting on the bunker showing up around here untill at least late May. We can either snag them or purchase them by the middle to the end of march during the past few years but with this freeze up a few of my buddies and myself are pulling out all the stops. we get a great run of BIG fish starting the end of march to the end of april (15 to 40 pounds) not many long island fishermen even know this early spring exists,
So our problem is getting the bunker we could and probibly will jig for herring and use the heads but the bait of choice is bunker and was hoping to get a fisherman that drives overroad that would like to make a few dollars transporting some of these babbies up north :confused:
