Striped Bass
The body of the Striped Bass is elongate and slightly condensed. It has a narrow head, and a large mouth with small teeth. The color is olive-green to dark blue on the back, silvery on the sides, and white below. There are 6 to 9 horizontal dark stripes on the side.

The common weight is 3 lb. - 15 lb.

The Striped Bass is found in the Atlantic Ocean and associated rivers from St. Lawrence River to St. Johns River, Florida. Most abundant from Hudson River to Chesapeake Bay.

Striped Bass travel in schools and are most abundant in coastal ocean waters, inshore bays, and coastal rivers.
Weakfish is a member of the drum family, is so named because of its fragile mouth which permits a hook to tear out rather easily.
It is a really powerful swimmer and a strong fighter when hooked.

It reaches about 6 lb, but fishes over 19 lb have been caught.
The color is silvery overall, the back is dark olive-green and specked with many dark blotches.
This fish is found from Nova Scotia to northern Florida, in coastal waters, along shores and in estuaries.

The Weakfish forms small schools in shallow water, and feeds on shrimps and other crustaceans at the bottom, and on small fish at the surface.
Tautog / Blackfish
Tautog are distributed along the Northeast Atlantic coast from Nova Scotia to Georgia, with the greatest abundances occurring in the U.S. between Cape Cod and Chesapeake Bay. They are generally found close to shore in water less than 60 feet deep north of Cape Cod, and up to 40 miles offshore at depths up to 60 feet south of the Cape.

Tautog thrive in areas with structured habitat. They are generally found around rocks and boulders in waters north of Long Island, and inhabit wrecks, jetties, natural and artificial reefs, and shellfish beds in the southern end of their range. Adults stay close to their preferred home site moving away only during the day to feed and returning at night where they become dormant and may actually sleep.

Fishing occurs primarily in the spring and fall, although wthere is an active fishery off the Birginia coast in the winter and some Nid-Atlantic fishermen will pursue tautog year-round.
Summer Flounder or Fluke is one of the larger Flounder species.
Generally they are white below and darker above, but they can turn various shades of gray, blue, green,orange and almost black; in fact they are called the chameleons of the sea because of their ability to change color to match the bottom on which they are found.

The Fluke reaches a weight of 26 lb, and is usually marked with dark spots (ocelli).

Like other species of flat fish, the Fluke have both eyes on one side of its head and, for characteristic it is able to rest on the ocean bottom and look up.

The flatfish is found in coastal waters from the southern gulf of Maine to Florida.
