Menhaden live to make dirty water clean again, making the lowly bunker one of our most critically important forage species. As John Skinner explains, the "dirty water" concept should help you improve your scouting!
By John Skinner

In his book, Dr. Bruce Franklin called bunker "The Most Important Fish in the Sea" and for good reason. This vital forage species is critical to the health of local gamefish like striped bass, weakfish and even bluefin tuna, and also to our local waters. The Fisherman's Inshore Insider, John Skinner, takes a look at the feeding habits of menhaden and why you might want to be on the lookout following the next passing storm.
