YOu can use clams here
'Specially in the marsh. My brother loves to fish with clams, but I usually opt for chunk Herring, with a little WD-40 sprayed on there lol. For some reason, the Stripers, atleast the ones in Hampton, DO NOT like chunk Mackerel. I remember one day last Summer, fishing chunk Mackerel in the marsh for 5 hours, and not ONE SINGLE BITE lol. The shop had run out of Herring for the day, so I was stuck with Mackerel. It was horrible lol. Then my friend shows up with Herring and starts catching fish right next to me. I was LIVID! Herring is more of an oily fish, so that may explain it. Its safe to say I do not take Mackerel down there to chunk anymore lol. BUT, if your live lining or throwing out dead WHOLE Mackerel, that may be a different story. Anyhow, if you want to fish tha maaahsh, clams, herrin', and my secret 10" PowerBait PowerEels are prime.
It's not a secret anymore
