Bait Feeds

Recommended Posts

I spent Wednesday fishing several spots, starting in Ogunquit, down to York and then ending up at Hill Beach. I hooked in to about a dozen dinks in the 16-18" range at the beginning and end of the day, but while I was down in the York area there was a ton of life around, including a massive school of what looked to be peanut bunker being pushed to the surface by Mackerel. This continued for well over an hour, and I hooked in to over a dozen of the mackerel, but it left me wondering if there was likely stripers feeding below the mackerel (this was in 15'+ of water, and what the best technique would be to get down to them if they were around. Does anybody more knowledgeable than myself happen to know the answer here?

Sometimes using a fast sink tip to get under the bait with either a p-nut or mackerel fly works. try to get as close to the bottom as possible, where feasible.
