Great report. I fished the mouth of the Hampton River last week with similiar results.
Here is a question that hopefully someone can answer. I got into a school of fish working over some sand eels in the 2-3 " range. The school was mixed with shad up to 2 1/2-3 pounds and some of the smallest stripers I have ever seen up north. I caught two that would have measured less than six inches in length. I find it hard to believe that these little guys made the journey from the Hudson or Chesepeake. I have heard of spawning activity in the Saco in Maine. Any educated guesses as to where these fish may have originated from?
