I'm taking my dad out this weekend to try and catch some striper. Does anyone know where to begin looking in the spring? I haven't fished for them since last summer so I don't even know where to begin looking shallow or deep? We will be using live shad if that helps any.


lets go fishin!!

I was fishing up the river over the weekend for blues and kept catching stripers on cut shad and carp in water 3 feet or less.

You have my sincere apology for being annoyed by those stripers. They were just hungry.

I was fishing the river when it was really cold and doing pretty good. After the warm weather and rain I can't find them I just assumed they went back to the lake.

Fished the McCowan area last weekend... best striper results were on a chrome shad rattletrap. There was a bass tournament Saturday but I was still on the lake during the weigh-in and didn't see the results.

They are doing weigh in at the State Park.

What ramps south/mid lake are open or good with a courtesy dock?

Starting about this time of year I usually start checking humps, especially those near the main river channel
