Conditions : Bull Shoals Lake: Tom Reynolds of STR Outfitters said Norfork Lake's stripers are moving out from the flats into their winter holding pattern. Tom says he was catching stripers in the 25-30-foot range and now they have moved into the 50-80-foot depths. You will find them there feeding in the 40-50-foot range. The stripers are now in large schools along with the white bass. Shad, shiners and spoons are the best baits. Because they are now schooled up, when using those baits the action can be very fast. Trolling will produce fish but because you're moving, you are not staying on the schools long enough to catch many. Even though it’s cold, winter striper fishing is one of the best times to catch lots of fish and have the lake to yourself. The good part of winter striper fishing is the fish will stay in this pattern for the next several months, so there should be not a lot of traveling looking for fish. When you find big balls of bait, the stripers will be close by. The stripers will move to the channel toward Crystal Cove and stay on the big flat and channel near Howard Cove and Blue Lady. Float Creek will begin to hold fish as the water turns colder. Stripers tend to congregate near and in the four corners area of 5A. “We are using shad but shiners will be an effective substitute to shad,” Tom says. “The best method is downlines set off the bottom about 2 feet. I also had 1 rod set about 20 feet down to catch the roving hybrids that are in the higher water column. Float and Panther creeks should also hold stripers, plus Big Creek. Follow the same pattern, find the shad and the stripers are nearby.”
