Striped Bass from a Kayak?

Hey guys, I'm a sophomore at the University of Arkansas, I've spent alot of time catching white bass and largemouth from the bank the last couple of years but I really want to get after some stripers. If I rent a kayak from the school's rec center would it be worth it to take it over to Beaver in search of striped bass? If so where should I go and what should I use? These fish are totally foreign to me as I grew up on Table Rock, thanks for all the help!

There's a couple of guys on here who chase stripers in kayaks. I don't like being out on big water in a little boat myself so it's not my thing. I stick to the protected waters with my kayak. But FF and YakFM should be able to put you onto something with a kayak.

Might try around Prairie Creek too. I like to throw Rogues and swimbaits for them.

I recommend a high vis flag on your kayak!

Definitely have a Flag on the Yak for safety

Launch at 12 bridge and work your way to Bear island then to the NW corner of Deer Island. Use brooder minnows and you should lock in to one. DO NOT do it on the weekend for safety sake please.

Totally foreign?? Why do Table Rock folks think they don't have any. Lol!!

Stripers were around the islands at 12 bridge.

Need marine repair? Send our own forum friend "fishinwrench" a message. 

He will treat you like family!!! I owe fishinwrench a lot of thanks. He has been a great mechanic with lots of patience!

The no wake zone around Prairie creek might be a good place to find some surface activity around sunrise and safe enough place to paddle around. The boats will slow down at the bridge also but the wakes can get rough around there and a stiper will take you for a ride. Good luck and be careful.
