Not as plentiful as they once were on Long Island, anchor in deeper holes (5'-8')in Great South Bay. Use lightest sinker (2-4 oz.)to hit bottom. Lift sinker 2"-3" and bounce in the mud to raise little mud swirl. This attracts. Periodically raise rod tip with a firm sweep. This is when they bite. Blood/sandworms best, Clam and squid ok too. Shatter clam shells into the water to chum. Used to catch sacks full. Now, only 2 or 3.
