fishing pogies on the boat

depends on the nature of the reef i think. If its scattered debris, then drift it.

 

If you drift over the same spot a couple times and keep notcing life, anchor up.

 

Or if you know very specific areas opf the reef with a lot of structure, anchor up on them. especially if its your own boat and theres only a few guys, you can also cast around over a wide area and work different pieces while anchored.

 

I usually prefer anchoring unless it is a very slow drift in shallower water. otherwise i just find it annoying having to use very heavy weight and keep feeding out line to hold bottom.

oh, you're talking about drifting bunker for bass?

 

I thought you meant catching "porgies" AKA pogies.

 

In that case, I'd be a bit more liekly to drift, but again, only if conditions make it reasonable and the bait isn't getting ripped through the water and spinning/dying.

 

I'd usually like to mark some fish and anchor and chunk/chum and do it that way with chunks or live bunker for bait.

 

Also, watch what boats around you are doing. If there's a tight fleet of anchored boats, don't try to drift.

 

One method that can work very well is to use half-live bunker dropped back into a chunk slick at anchor. snipping the tail or cutting the back meat off can do this nicely, but probably would not work as well with a fast drift.
