Stripers and salinity
For you striper experts out there, do stripers care much about salinity? I'm curious because it seems like there is so much more action closer to the mouth of the river than out in the ocean. Is that just related to food availability (there have been tons of baitfish at the mouth lately), or is it also related to the fresher water.
I'm curious because there seem to be so many baitfish out by breaking rocks, but I never hear anyone talking about catching stripers there. There are a few other points further out where we've taken lots of mackerel in deeper water, but never even get a hit from a striper.
