If you are interested in learning to target larger reservoir stripers, plan on attending the Striper Kings (SK) meeting on Tuesday Jan 3rd. The meeting starts at 7 pm at Carolina Fine Foods, 625 SE Main St, in Simpsonville, SC 29681. Come early to meet/greet/eat and tell fishing tales. Guests and prospective new members are always welcome.

A presentation will be given at the meeting by John Sawyer on “Fishing For Reservoir Stripers, A How-To Handbook,” with emphasis being placed on techniques that can be used to land larger freshwater stripers in our area lakes this time of year.

Whether you are a beginning reservoir striper fisherman looking to catch greater numbers of fish, or an experienced reservoir striper angler looking to land your first 30+ lb fish, you may find “Fishing For Reservoir Stripers, A How-To Handbook” helpful.

The hand book contains detailed chapters on:

Understanding Your Fishery
Rigging the Boat
Using your SONAR and GPS unit
Keeping a Fishing Log
Reading a Topo Map for Key Lake Features
Necessary Tackle
Catching and Keeping Bait
Seasonal Movements
Weather Patterns
Downline Techniques
Topline Techniques (Freelines, Planer Boards, Balloons)
Cut Bait Methods
Artificial Presentations (Including Trolling and Umbrella Rigs)
Cleaning Your Striper
… and much more.

The book also contains over 100 color photos and illustrations. Fish identification illustrations were provided by celebrated wildlife artist and former Wildlife in NC editor Mr. Duane Raver. There is also a bonus chapter on Longlining for Crappie, which as you will see, is very similar to freelining for stripers. Longlining for crappie is especially effective Feb-April on our area lakes.

The book is 5.5”x8.5”, and is designed to easily fit in a tackle box or onboard storage area for quick reference.

Secure web purchasing is provided through PayPal. Questions can be directed by email to Local copies are also available for sale at several Lake Hartwell and Lake Murray area retailers.

Remember, stripers under 10 lbs make the best table fare. Please release fish >10 lbs to grow into the 20, 30 and 40+ lb trophies we are all after!

And do us all a favor, Take A Kid Fishing!

Merry Christmas, and Tight Lines to All in 2017!
