The sand eel is a small staple baitfish that schools in the millions and provides a great portion of the predator’s diet, particularly in the northeast. Stripers push these schools toward the shore at night and often can be seen feeding on them all night on the beaches of New England. This little pattern offers a great representation with plenty of movement and a terrific profile. Color, Silver.
