That would be a big blow to our area. Fresh bait is already hard to come by.

...A good option for bussines, if some one have the $$$ will be nice to go with a " bait place "

I don't have the money... but one day I will be the " lil B-gate " lol

Didn't want to take a chance, so I got my 200lb's of fresh ocean bunker today from martins right off the boat...gonna freeze and salt it and should be great for the spring season. VERY fresh frozen is suprisingly good when thawed.

chip, they are located in west oc fishing harbor...off of golf course road...on the south side of the canal. They will probably not be getting bunker in much longer. I think they get just enough to get the crabbers through the season. Just a guess, but they probably will not have any fresh during the start of the striper season. Thats why you need to buy now and freeze up.

I heard it was sold and it will reopen...not sure how reliable the info was...and not sure if they will cater to us fishermen.

I was in Ake's the other day and they had fresh bunker, but not sure how long that will last. I don't think they really cater to surf fishermen, with regards to bait, but maybe that will change after Harbor Tackle closed.

There is John Henry's on 611 and I also heard alltackle may be carying some fresh bunker, not sure on that tho.
