Thanks for the welcome aboard from both Baitrunner and Striperjim. Sure wish you FISHERMEN were from around these parts. I am positive I would learn many interresting points on striper fishing. It is always nice to hear from people wanting to advance the knowledge of the novice; of which I am.
One of the best magazines I have found on fishing and hunting here in the Natural State is the Arkansas Sportsman. It seems to always cover some topic on Beaver Lake and other surrounding areas. But you know the old saying, "Give me a fish and I will eat for a day. Teach me to fish and I will eat for a life time!" In reality, I mostly believe in the catch and release policy with the occasional keeper for the table for my wife and I; but never ever a large mouth.
Well, got to go and get the line wet. Hope to hear from the both of you in the future and also others that maybe locals willing to advance my overall fish to catch ratio.
