Striper Migration Map

I stumbled upon an awesome Striped Bass migration tool via Facebook yesterday courtesy of one of my weekly reads, On the Water. The map was last updated on the 5th with a new update on the horizon (based on trends of update releases). Check it...

Via On the Water:


The striper spawn in the Chesapeake was “steady and protracted” reported the Maryland DNR. Winter rain and snow runoff a good March plankton bloom and subsequent zooplankton bloom, which hopefully will provide a food source for newly hatched striped bass larvae. Cross your fingers for a big 2015 year-class!
Post-spawn fish have begun to leave the spawning grounds, and many big, spawned-out fish are being caught by anglers in the Bay. In the next week, those fish will begin leaving the Bay and heading up the coast toward New Jersey.
