Some of the ASA tourney fishermen will use live bunker in the tourneys up north........it is a staple.....In fact you can see ASA team Simrad Capt Harry Svenson in a few of those shots......I have used them and they do work well, but you have to have a KICK ASS live well set up to keep them alive.....

Big thing up in Montauk now is live porgies vs. bunker. Both work well but locals will tell you that if the porgies are around, the bass will hone in on them. The guys fishing with eels at night do well also up there. If you try the live bunker hook them just behind the anal fin and fish will dive down to where the big girls are. Also recommend circle hooks for that type of fishing.
