I have been anchoring up from the buoy about 400 yds in 39 - 40' of water. The chum might be overkill as there have been schools of fish moving through there regularly. Jigging along with livelining will do fine. The hook-up ratio was better with a chunk of spot than with a whole one. See my reports from last Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
