Newbie Needs Advise
Hi all, I am a newbie to the striper scene. I have wanted to fish for them since I read about them years ago. I just have never been in a position to do so. I have some old salmon/ steelhead gear and some saltwater gear but am not sure what to use. I will be fishing on Beaver Lake and possibly Bull Shoals on Ark. / MO.
I am not sure when the spring run starts and most of the fish are hybrid. I don't know if that makes a difference or not.
Beaver says that they manage the lake for bigger fish not big numbers. The average is 15lb. with many close to double that size.
Can anyone give me some direction here? I guess the biggest questions are rod and real size, type of bait or lure for the season and decent places to fish for them in the spring, and when to go?
