More Striper Porn

Couple more striper shots for everyone to check out. These were caught on the Hi this week by some buddies of ours. And yes, they are good eating if prepared right. We do eat all of them, but the biggest reason that we keep them is because they eat our trout.

Stripers Are Here!

The striper are making their annual run up the Hiwassee River. These fish move up into our colder waters when the lakes warm up. Like any fish, they will migrate, if possible, to find better water temps and conditions. These fish usually hang around until October. They're not very hard to catch, just hard to locate. Once you find them holding in an area they can be caught on the fly or on spinning tackle. They are feeding machines that will put a big time stretch in your line.
