perfect eating size!
You cant keep anything under 28" here. Last year it was 38".

Blues fight better then stripers and are fun on light line. But for eating i agree! All those blues were thrown back.

Jig for the small ones. Trollin for the big ones. Around here they come in at night around the tunnel. You get a big hit from the 8lb flounder. I keep the rod in my hands and not in the rod holder when trollin. Flounder are some of the best tasting fish in the Chesapeake Bay. Try catching a cobia.

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.
