Default How low do they go?

I am new to coastal striper fishing. Most of my fishing has been at Norman or Buggs. I have heard of the southern migration, however I still don't know how far south they travel. I have heard they will round the cape (lookout) but only stay a for a short time. Morehead is an easy inlet to get out of, unlike Oregon. It would be great to find out about when they show up in that area and for how long. Dates, water temps, report sites would be a great help.

Welcome to the site. How far south and for how long they migrate is all based on water temperatures and the abundance of food available. The wintering grounds Bass will behave differently in the warmer climes. Here is some info on florida stripers.

This link is a good one to watch on the North Carolina striper watch.

Many fish in the Congaree river in SC. As far as I know, they aren't land locked! We mostly find them in the summer but the occational striper in the winter months aren't uncommon!
