Default Re: New To Stripers

Welcome, Burntmypiston. If you are accustomed to freshwater fishing, start by using only baitcasters--you'll burn through spinning rigs. Use 12 pound test line, minimum. Get a collection of jigbaits that look alot like Stump Jumpers-- Google that and you'll see what I mean. Let out about 150 yards of line behind that aluminum boat, set the motor at idle speed, and troll. You will probably come across something that will scare the living daylights out of you. In your region Lake Norman is famous for stripers. Start fishing in early March and keep it up until at least the middle of December. You'll find them.
Good luck!
