Are Bunker Back???

Are Bunker Back???

It’s a question on a lot of anglers’ mind.  And it’s been there for a long time. Many years ago, a handful of anglers, including myself, got the menhaden trawlers pushed out of Connecticut waters. To do it we had to testify in the Connecticut legislation as to why this was needed. Well it worked. And many other states did the same. It was a step in the right direction.

In recent years, bunker have been more plentiful throughout the Northeast; not quite like the good old days mind you but better.  And there is reason to believe we going to see more in our waters. Why? Because so many people bitterly complained for over a decade, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission is finally making a concerted effort to improve how they manage menhaden.  Can’t go into details here, but if you wish to know more, pick up a copy of  the forthcoming May/ June  issue of Martha’s Vineyard Magazine. I spell the whole thing out there.
