Keys to Recent Success

I have had limited success in the last two weeks of fishing. Oh, I'm not setting the surf fishing world on fire catching. I'm getting one to three stripers an outing, and I have only blanked one time. The keys to my success have been the same every time. Here they are:
1. I have been fishing mostly in the dark into the early night.
2. Small, 1 oz. poppers have taken a few fish, especially right before dark.
3. Small Hogys in a bone color have taken all my fish after dark. Surprisingly, nothing on teasers.
4. For conditions, I have been fishing mostly moving water or a white water surf. I have tried to avoid fishing calm and clear water conditions.
