Striped Bass: Big Action and Accessible

It's Striper Time!

That time of year where these voracious predators will hammer lures and bait from the Atlantic Coast to the California Coast and Delta's.

Joe, at Diorio Guide Service in Connecticut is catching striped bass in the 30-40-pound range, with a few pushing the 50-pound mark. He uses topwater lures, soft plastics and live bait.

Striped Bass Is Accessible

One of the reasons we loved Striped Bass here is because they are so accessible to everyone. They can be caught inland, in deltas, rivers, aqueducts, the beach, or from a boat. Topwater or trolling, hard lures or with bait. With such easy opportunities to hook up, there is simply no reason not to get out there!

Gear Up

Be sure to beef up your gear. Go for at least a 7 ft. rod and a 4000-5000 size reel. We also recommend 250 yards of braided line that is between 20 to 40 lbs. If you are not top water fishing, don't be shy with the weight. Stripers like to get low as they are not big fans of bright light and look for cooler waters when the surface starts warming. Unless you are out in the early morning hours or later evening, fish deep and near cover.
