Infusion of sand eels...

The stripers were not taking full advantage, but the plot has certainly thickened on Nantucket sound as there are huge clouds of bait moving in.

Stevo - I use a point and shoot not waterproof - but it's compact enough so I will actually bring it out with me when wading. I am very pleased with it, however it's definitely NOT a DSLR. Frankly I would never carry one of those around so this one suits me well.

I've always rated Canon cameras and have some lovely shots from my old ixus V3, however the grit and sand didn't get on with the telephoto lens that pops in & out... one day it just ground to a halt.
I use an Olympus 1030 SW Mju these days but the images aren't as sharp as my old Canon even though it was only 3MP compared to my 10MP Olympus. Progress, eh!

Profile has a lot to do with it - JonC had an olive sand eel that was seducting keeper sized bass regularly even when fish seemed sparse Saturday including where this pic was taken.

One of these days we should hold a striper for questioning and try to find out what they are really thinking inside that walnut sized brain

Great shot. That backlighting really shows the color nicely and affirms some of the color I have been incorporating in my super sand eels.

it has been my experience that sand eels will change color over different bottoms just like any other fish. Olive can be the right color over a dark bottom whereas a very light blue/green imitates them over a light sandy bottom. As an old man once said "it doesn't pay to know more about the bait than the fish do"

The colors sure do 'pop' though don't they with this point and shoot?
