2012 Striper Season is seriously underway

Clouds of micro sand eels are drifting over the flats, while adult sand eels infest the sand that stays underwater longest, shooting out ahead of every footstep like miniature lightning bolts. Small stripers were gathered so thick they darkened the flats - taking the fly on every cast, but soon losing my interest - while bigger bass in the 35-40" class made their stealthy advances into the shallows on the rising tide to gulp prey to fatten and recover from the physical stress of migration from Chesapeake and Hudson drainages. The world is in bloom, and yes indeed... the 2012 striper season is well underway
