good adult bunker imitations

Generally, big swimming plugs like Atom 40or a CC Pikie would be considered bunker style baits that  a Pencil Popper bouncing and splashing around the the top could also be a bunker. Or a big Hopkins or Kastmaster flashing around the surfline. Or a large rubber Storm Shad, watch it swim and you think its real.  So many are made to imitate one of the most prevalent striper preys, its hard to break them all down.

I love a nice yellow metal lip that just barely breaks the surface as it swims. If there's bunker around its my go to.

I fish from the rocks

Metal lips would be my go to then. Pikies, dannies, pencils/spooks if they're feeding on the surface.

My 2 favorites are BM or LS69 juniors. They both have a great action on a slow retrieve and if you bend the eyelet down slightly the nose digs in but the tail just breaches the surface.

Big Pikie metal lip, I've been buying big plugs specifically for this application recently.

 

Afterhours 9" 4 oz can't wait to throw it around the edges of some bunker pods
