Do stripers eat baby cow nosed rays?

Chesapeake Bay is full of cow nosed rays, and they spawn here in the spring. I'm curios as to whether the stripers eat the young, or are they already too formidable at birth. Anyone know?

Never mind, I answered my own question. Rays are born alive, and are 11"-18" wide at birth, which would be a pretty big meal for most stripers. Too bad, it would be pretty useful to have some of them eaten up.

Cobia eat baby southern stingrays but I do not know if stripers do.  I have seen a few in their stomachs after filleting rolled up like a burrito.  Also watched a Cobia chasing a baby ray once, it promptly ate my well placed bucktail.

I suspect that many bass hitting a large bunker spoon think they are attacking a flounder or fluke and not a bunker . 

This lure was marketed for a while .
