Hey Crazy Al, this is just the kind of board we need to get us thru the cold, dark, boring winter! Welcome Aboard :)
I do have a question, while fishing outside of Jones this morning I heard a guy say he was doing great with bass on clam bellies in 40 feet of water off of the needle. This may be a dumb question, but how do you fish bellies in 40ft of water. I've done it and caught a lot of fish in the inlet and back bays, but the ocean?

Good Luck and Tight Lines

Ah? that?s a great question! Although this is not my preference? It?s a known fact that clam bellies is very affective? However, you run the risk of high mortality release!

To prevent it ? You will need a circle hook and some rubber band! The circle hook will greatly reduce the mortality % (deep, gut hooking) -AND- the rubber band is a great gadget to keep the bellies intact!

Please note: Clam will entice more strikes, but mostly school bass. If you are seeking the elusive cow, I strongly recommend fresh bunker! At this time, there are large bunker pods migrating through the South Shores and that would be the key to your success!

Hope this helps!
