Re: back bay drift?
There's a short window between when the bass start feeding heavily on the bunker and when the bluefish show up that's magic for chunking (NOT chumming) bass
Even after the blues show if you chunk at the right speed and with the right sized chunks you can keep the blues from noticing you for a good long time.
The trick is to anchor on a spot that has bass holding structure and a decent amount of current. Just chumming on a dead piece of bottom with no current is pretty much a wast of time - unless, like Zim (who knows all about this particular subject) said, you like catching trash fish.
