Striped bass: Good. Fish are starting to school around Bomb Island to the dam. Try herring at 30-60 feet. Striper can also be caught all over the lower lake, on both the Ballentine side and in the big water near the dam. The bite around the towers has been good off and on. The best depth range has been 35-80 feet and most of the action is coming down-line fishing with live herring right now, although anglers are also catching fish trolling. If anglers are not using lead core line or downriggers they need to use lures that weigh at least an ounce to get it down to the fish. There are a few scattered reports of schooling and so anglers should have their eyes open for surface action and always have a lure to throw to schooling fish tied on.

3 fish caught | Lunker: 4lb Largemouth Bass using a Abu Garcia Fluke

  Me and my friend were fishing off of his doc and we were killing them they were all under docks.  We found that using a frog and a fluke works the best.  E had alot of luck in a cove too.  We would go around in coves and find shaded aeras and that were the fish were!
