I found the same thing fishing in the Coles point / Ragged Point area. I decided to try trolling at a faster speed hoping to catch Blues but on every turn I would catch 3 small stripers (had 3 light rods out). Nothing over 12" in size. Hopefully we will see some larger fish soon. Croaker fishing at night was good though. Wish I could be some help but I'm thinking about heading farther down river next time.
