Patoka Lake Stripers
Patoka Lake Indiana stripers average 10 to 12 pounds and 16-pounders are common.
In the fall, stripers spend their days fattening up on schools of shad. Come September and October, as the water cools, stripers can predictably be caught in the 8- to 14-foot range.
They school up the shad and herd them into shallow water . Look for clouds of baitfish use spinnerbaits, suspending jerkbaits and lipless crankbaits. When trolling, use downriggers and planer boards

Monroe Reservoir - Hybrid Striped Bass ( Wipers), Catfish (Flathead, channel), Walleye, Bass
Known for its largemouth and more recently walleye, Wipers in Monroe inhabit open water venues, another niche mostly unused by all the other predators. Late in the day, live bait or planer boards with live bait 6-8 feet are producing some hybrid stripers, but these fish do not typically survive catch and release methods. Trolling diving lures in Moores Creek or from Fairfax to Ramp Creek has been effective for walleye.
