Looking for those stripers

Recommended Posts

You'll be in the right area, stripers will be on the lower end of the lake for the next few months.  There's been a top water bite for a few weeks but it's tapering off (see Quillbacks posts on this lake).  Your best bet will be live bait, gizzard shad (if you can get them) or brood minnows sold locally. If you want to try top water, get out EARLY, it's usually over with by 7:00.

Good Luck!

Well I am a still looking - went out early today with a buddy and we covered lots of water, never saw much top water activity, at least from stripers.  Black bass were active, buddy caught a 3 lb. LM on a fluke over 50 FOW, we caught several nice 15-16" spotted bass, a few smaller spots and finished up with several smallmouth off a rocky bank on jigs.  Black bass are chasing shad on top in places, seems to reason so would the stripers, but it just isn't happening.

Saw a few guides pulling shad down by point 6 that might be a good place to start looking.
