Striped Killifish

 

Fundulus majalis

 

Size: to 6"

 

Habitat: Generally inshore in harbors, inlets, and other quiet waters. Tolerates a wide range of salinities.

 

Notes: The largest and most attractive of the many species of killifish in the New Jersey area. The male is above, the female below.

 

Unlike their delicate cousins the Silversides, local killies are tough as nails, and can often survive several days in nothing more than cool damp seaweed.

I hear they're killer fluke bait due to their high tolerance to neglect.

 

When I lived down on Long Island, a killie/squid strip (or fluke belly back in the day) was killer...and apparently the killie was the 'deal breaker' because more times than not, if I missed a hit - I would not get another hit until I reeled in and put on another killie...meanwhile the squid or fluke belly would remain pretty much intact

It has been known that in tough times a certain someone(no names) pulled a chub trap ,put chubs in blender and made chub burgers.

Hope things never get that tough for you.
