Are you guys in DE still getting stripers, or have they moved off to the south by this point?

It all depends on what the winter brings us here along the Jersey Coast..

Some years we have them in the backwaters (non-warm water outflows) as early as when the season opens ( March 1st.) Other years it may take later in the month or even early April.. Just how cold and how much snow we get over the next two months will determine exactly when those waters warm up enough for me to even take a look...
