Bunker flies catch Big Fish!
Its no secret that Striped Bass, Bluefish and Weakfish love Bunker (Menhaden) .
Every season the biggest fish are caught on live Bunker
I'm a professional Fly fisherman and I use Big Bunker Flies to catch big Fish
Bunker flies are my #1 choice for big fish
They are the perfect pattern to imitate live Bunker
These patterns are proven, Here's how I use them
Method #1 Follow the BUNKER!
I fish them right below a school of live bunker that are under attack buy active fish
I use A 9wt outfit with Intermediate - 300 grain sinking line
Stay with the bunker and cast into the school and the outer edges
Bass & Weakfish generally like a slow to medium retrieve
Bluefish like it on the fast side.
Method #2 Marking fish
When marking fish on the bottom with my electronics I use a 10-11wt outfit
with 400-500 grain fast sinking and a weighted big Bunker fly
This will get you down deep up to 35ft. Make a several drift over the fish
on each drift cast to the downward drift side of the boat and let the line sink
as you are approaching the fish make sure you get the fly down into the zone
when you are over the fish slow retrieve all the way up to the surface
these fish will sometimes follow it all the way up and commit right at the boat
You can take advantage and start catching Big Fish on a fly by using Bunker Flies
just select any of the proven colors and weighted (leaded) Bunker Fly for deep down
or Un-leaded Bunker fly for Shallow water or just under the Bunker school
