Do the blue fish show up the same time as the Stripers?

Last year I hooked into some 34"+ blues early in the season and they were just pure racers that made my reel sing well into the backing.

I got into a tussel with some fiesty blues in early May last season in Marion Harbor. Had my first stripers of the year that day too.

The blues where long and skinny but fought incredibly hard.

generally speaking, the first blues show up off cotuit/dead neck area.
