Depends on the time of year. In the spring their chasing shad and thats why they end up the rivers. They do eat eels but prefer bait fish and squid. If you open up a striper and check the stomach contents you will see that 90% will have squid and baitfish in the belly. Our biggist stripers are caught on jigs in 30 -50' of water offshore where their feeding. Last friday we saw a boat fishing live eels and asked then how their doing on the radio. They boated no keepers. We boated 10 keepers and all limited out. I have done the night fishing trips and have not been as succesfull. But maybe they were off days.
