Spring Stripers?

As Spring get closer, I was wondering when the "big" stripers might be hitting the Delware beaches. So being the geek I am - I went to the GAC database and queried all "keeper" Stripers (28" or bigger), caught in April and May (2018-2020), on the beach with 20 miles from Bethany Beach. Then graphed them :). I hope this gives our surf fishing anglers a little optimism for the upcoming weeks ~ Greg

1 GregAbsolutely good to eat check out this video with recipes http://flavornc.com/2016/11/spiny-dogfish-wanchese-nc/ (Greg 04/07/2021 03:23am)
1410 Striper Hunter Thanks. (Striper Hunter 04/07/2021 06:05am)
1 Greg Make sure if you’re gonna eat them that they are spiny dog fish and not just dogfish - big taste difference. And make sure you cut off their head, bleed them out and ice them right away. You may want to google how to do it. Not doing it will foul the meat (Greg 04/07/2021 10:19am)
