Striper Time

Striper  -  Striped Bass
pronunciation: \'stri-per\  I like this Fish! He's the largest game fish in my home area and when it comes to fishing I like BIG! Here in the Tennessee Valley of North Alabama we got Pan fish, Crappie, Bass, Smallies, Large mouth, Native Freshwater Stripe, Hybrids and Salt Water Stripe or Striped Bass, along with the ever faithful Catfish to mention a few. Certain times of the year the Big Salts gather up and put the hurt on some Schooling Shad and Skip Jack. This is when I get out a 8 or 9 weight with my old Billy Pate, a big Saltwater Popper or Sardine Streamer, weight forward line, heavy tippet etc. and hit a few spots that if all things are correct, I can cast to the big boys bustin shad on top water, it's the next best thing to the Gulf. At present my wife is enduring my annual gear survey, where I pour it all out on the dinning room table, clean, discard, make notes as to any deficiencies and organize. You never have enough of this or that, there's always the new fly or lure, you need to be able to sleep at night so of course you buy it. AP
