Striped Bass - Spring River Striper Techniques

This article can be useful for amateurs of spring fishing in general and Striped Bass fishing on rivers particularly. Keep in mind any recommendations and advices about bait discussed in this article. It's one of the essential components which ensures fishery success.

The habitual spawning ground of Striped Bass is fresh water, because fertilized eggs must voyage hanging in water column before their hatching. targeted waterways in the spring. Thus Striper usually spawn in long rivers. Striped Bass actively feed throughout the entire journey to his spawning ground.

Striped Bass gather below dams in large rivers, then use medium bait casting equipment and 20-pound test line. Attach a large shad, minnow, or herring under its back fin to a hook 3/0, and wait till fish swallow a gudgeon. You can also successfully use cut bait technique, part your minnow or shad into triangular pieces, about 4 inches in length, and bait on a 2/0 hook. This is a sop in the pan for Striped Bass. Make sure the weight is enough to push the lure to the bottom of the river, and cast the bait upstream on an angle. When the bait cannon from the river bottom, keep the line taut and be prepared to strikes.

It happens that fairly large Striped Bass sit in the pool area below the dam. The magic Striped Bass lure does not exist. In low-water conditions, use a considerable bright colored lure, you can also cast traditional floater-divers and surface lures. If the fish sit deep in the water column, use a large yellow jig with a yellow plastic flip tail worm. After the lure sinks, suspend the bait one or two feet from the bottom, and raise and lower the rod tip from time to time.

When fishing from the banks of strong current rivers, try a surf rod with 20-pound test line on a spinning reel. If casting large silver spoon lures, attach a ball-bearing swivel to the spoon to avoid twisting your line. In fast waters use of bright white or yellow lures can raise the level of your catching.

Fast river areas with power-generating stations can also be put on the list of hot fishing spots. Striped Bass lay in wait beneath the discharge tubes and feed on the small fish. When fishing near operating power-generators station, fisher should cast a spoon lure or jog near the tubes, letting the bait sink without hanging on river bottom. When fishing near power-generating, fishers should drift downstream with the motor running at low speed, while trailing a lure.

Sometimes you may find it hard to detect strikes in fast water. The bass can swallow a gudgeon without actively pursuing. Thus, any change in pressure or indecision in the line may signal a strike.

Your can also hook live bait (minnow or shad) through both lips as do jigs and deep-sinking crank bait, for example Magnum Hellbenders or Bombers, it works well in fast rivers. Let the fish engage with the live bait for a few seconds before setting the hook. Striper fishing on the spring river is enthralling and can give a quite good catch.
