Stomach Contents

post #1 of 1685
Thread Starter 
It fascinates me to see the stomach contents of striped bass. From massive amounts of peanut bunker and lobster to lead. Post some pics of the stuff you found inside your bass.

I never thought to photograph the stomach contents, but I had a 20 pounder, this year, that had a whole lobster and a really big herring inside. This year I've also seen more crabs inside the stomachs of stripers than in previous years.

I've cleaned a bunch of fish, but more times than not, their bellies were full of grass shrimp and spearing. I fish in the backwaters most of the time and only find other species in the stomach contents towards the fall when the fish are heading south. I do find it interesting that I rarely clean fish full of peanut bunker, even though I usually fish under the bait balls most of the time. Either they digest those small bunker very quickly or they just don't eat them like I thought they would.

I've found rocks in the bellies of numerous bass and blues. I guess they may have been swallowed accidentally while foraging on the bottom. Anyone else find stones in fish?

I had one a couple weeks ago that was full of mussels.
