Where Are The Stripers At?

Recommended Posts

Bass, I got in to a few a couple weeks back in Rocky Branch but most the reports and thoughts are between 12 bridge and Horse Bend. With this weather though I would bet Hickory Creek to War Eagle when its over

Two weeks ago they were up War Eagle right past the power line. Tuesday I started there but they had left. Fished back down to point 12 and up the White to a little past the marina. No fish and didn't see anything of interest on the graph. Water temp in the low 50's so the winter bite should be in earnest after this bit of nasty weather departs.

I had one steal my Megabass jerkbait in Coose last sunday. Wrapped me around a tree and broke my line. $25 down the drain. Fun while it lasted though. My partner caught a big walleye right after I lost that stiper on the same bank. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk 2

Had one do the same to me, except it got one of my McSticks. They get in those trees and it's goodbye jerkbait.

Thus why I don't fish expensive jerkbaits or any bait over $10 for that matter. The A-rig combined with terminal tackle and bait is expensive enough. Which is why I use 50lb braid..........it's gettin' back in the boat one way or another. LOL

50lb or 100lb braid if they wrap a tree 30 feet down you have lost a bait...but if you want to catch bass in the cold you have to work close to those trees because Mr Largemouth won't come out very far to get it.
