The bunker fish are out in droves in the waters of Long Island! Hundreds, maybe thousands of bunker fish could be seen today in and around the Great Peconic Bay.
At times it seemed like you could walk on water there were so many fish. We're no fishing experts, but apparently, when the bunker are out, striped bass and bluefish are usually not far behind (or should we say below). Bass and bluefish may travel below the bunker and feed when they get hungry. So, if you think something fishy is going on, think again. The bunker are just having a little fun.
