Conditions : LAKE PLEASANT: Hello, all anglers. The spring striper bite is here. The striper have moved up shallow and anglers are catching them in 25-45 feet of water. Lots of people are having great success catching striper on live shad. If your good with throwing a cast net, these baitfish can be caught in shallow water near shoreline or submerged trees. Be sure to look at the regulations and use the correct size cast net. If you don’t care to use live shad, frozen anchovies always work very well also.

Guys are also catching these fish by trolling buck tail jigs and 5 inch paddle tail swim baits. Make sure your trolling nice and slow (2mph). For all you shore fisherman this is a great time for you to catch striper from shore. I recommend using a Carolina rig using frozen anchovies. Take advantage of the fish being in shallower water. Once the heat of summer arrives these fish will go very deep and shore fishing will be more difficult.

We are also starting the night fishing season. Guys are reporting 25-50 striper a night using a drop shot rig with live shad or anchovies. Once the water temperature gets in the 80”s the boils will be more consistent and top water action will be a blast. Great time of year to take the kids and family out to catch these fun fish. Once the day temperatures get too hot consider night fishing. It’s fun and comfortable compared to the daylight sun during triple digit heat. Tight Lines everybody!
