I have read with great interest the articles on salters in the northeast. I remember years ago catching a fish in the Chesapeake Bay which the locals called a salmon trout. To me, it looked a lot like a salter. This is going back 50 years or more. We would fish for sea trout, croakers, stripers, etc. We used peelers for bait. Maybe once a year we caught one of these salmom trout. Lengh was approx. 10 to 12 inches. This at the mouth of the Nanticoke River and once at Tilghman Island.
I would love to know if it is possible the fish were salters? Maybe the lower end of their range?
