Well gents, one week after buying the Creek Bank bait tank, I can tell you I like it!

Struck out on some night fishing Friday night, but two early morning trips in the last week have yielded a few fish. And really, there's nothing much more exciting than hearing that clicker go off!

I've just got to figure out a pattern once 8 am hits. I've found a spot where the stripers come in early in the morning-- I pick up three or four between 6:30-8:00 and then it shuts down.

Gonna try to catch bait tomorrow night and see if I can keep it alive until Wednesday morning so I don't have to spend so much time on bait-catching before fishing.

Thanks for all the advice and info here... this is really a great website.

I dont know what that means but I would think it would be something about being addicted to striper fishing, fishing, or SeeinStripes?

Good to see you made it to the Soup. The place of everything Striper 'holy.' You will develop an acute case of MSOCD, aka Morone Saxatilis Obsessive Compulsive Disorder if you spend too much time here. Fish ON!


just as I said crazier than hell about striper fishing Laughing

striper fishing with live bait is kinda like what I hear people talking about being addicted to crack. I know I spend a damn fortune chasing these fish and I only hope I live long enough like Ezel did and can retire in Tenn and chase monsters until I finally kill over or the take back man takes it all... Very Happy

Live baiting for striper is kind of like sex, you don't just do it once and forget about it.

jon,

that is gonna be your summer pattern, when you hear us talk or type or what ever,about a summer pattern that is what we mean. that is gonna be the way to fish for the fish in your area this time of year.i have been fishing the same exact pattern for 2 months now, get to the lake at 5:30 fish till 8:30 then get off the water.go find bait or wash the boat. you can stay out all day and burn up gas,bait,time,voltage,skin and any relationships you might have but your prob. not gonna catch anymore fish then if you fish till 8-9 oclock and get off the water.

write this down and save it for next year,that way in march when you stop catching fish in your "spring pattern location" you will know where to go and when to start doing what you are doing now."

just a thought

Sounds like your Done, Addicted, it's over.

With some decent electronics, you should be able to follow those fish. Where ever these fish are, they are simply moving deeper as the sun comes up. I suspect they are on a main lake point. If so, they are simply dropping back into the main channel.

Yeah there's no doubt I'm getting addicted. I'm fishing Badin Lake here on the Yadkin in North Carolina.

I got my first taste of striper fishing catching them from the surf at the Outer Banks. My best day of fishing (EVER) was being on the beach, ALONE, and caught 9 stripers in about 45 minutes. The smallest was 19 lbs, biggest was 28. By the time others showed up, the school had moved on out. Throwing big gator spoons in the surf and catch big, tasty fish-- doesn't get much better.

I fish the south eastern coast of NC quite a bit, but this striper fishing is hard to beat.

I've wanted to catch fresh water stripers since I was a kid- I hooked (and lost) a monster of a striper (to me) when I was 12 years old fishing with my grandpa. So now it's payback time.
