Land-Locked Striper Facts
For the most part, Stripers stay together in schools. School size can range from just a few fish, to several hundred or even thousands. Running in schools they cover lots of ground quickly and may be here this morning, a few miles away in the afternoon, and somewhere else entirely tomorrow.
Compared to Largemouth, Stripers are more light sensitive and easy to spook. This would account for the fact that the most productive fishing times are early morning, late evening, or nighttime. Overcast or dark rainy days present the greatest opportunity for daytime fishing for Stripers.
Baits to use
There are a couple of options when it comes to bait, but you definitely want to select something from the list below.
|Live Bait:||Chicken Liver:||Works well for smaller Stripers and the occasional large fish.|
|Shiners:||Best for larger fish. Any small Baitfish such as bluegill or crappie works well.|
