Fall Stripers

The fall Striper fishing here on Smith Mountain Lake has really been picking up over the past few weeks. The water is perfect right now at around 62 degrees and schools of bait and fish are everywhere. A good friend of mine just brought me a fish and a report.

This fish is just barely under the slot , but a good eating size. My friend reported that slot sized fish were busting on shad all around him for most of the morning's trip. Several schools of fish that went under his boat today were thick enough to " Black Out " his depth finder , a phenomenon that occurs when a school of fish is packed close enough together to make the depth finder read a false bottom. I expect these conditions to last well into December.

You can find out more about how we catch these fish here.

Have a great day!
