Well folks the title says it all. What would you and WHY?
If you chum you may not have to convince your nephew to go Mud Cattin . Your nephew has class . You have a chance at both without bobbing and weaving all the planer board boats. Fishing is supposed to be fun. In Lenny Rudows Fish Talk , there is a one of a kind picture of a guy holding up a nice sized large mouth bass caught at the Bay Bridge from last year. you might want to bring along some Bass tackle. I'll be fishing for my favorite fish , Snakeheads , on opening day from away from the Striper fleet.
Fishing can be anything you want it to be
Chumming. Why burn a lot of fuel to chase a depleted stock and more than likely get skunked? With chumming, you stand a better chance these days at getting pullage.

Chumming can work - biggest trouble I see would be the wakes of other boats and a few trollers getting close , not knowing you are anchored.
This month Fish Talk ( free magazine ) has excellent write up about trophy chumming / chunking. Lot of very good tips from Lenny Rudow.
They say that life's a carousel - spinning fast, you've got to ride it well.
If you decide to chum, the non offset circle hook rule is still in effect. Good luck whatever you decide......... Gary
Thanks for the input. I had a Bumm year last year. Fuel tank issues, then a blown motor. So, I have been out of touch with everything. I'll report back here my findings.
I chummed last year opening day last year. Will do the same this year.
