Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Things are progressing nicely on the striper front. Fish to almost 40 pounds were reported from places like Hempstead Harbor and City Island. As you travel east the fish get a little smaller, but anywhere from NYC to the Connecticut River offers a reasonable chance at fish to 20 pounds ...
