All about fishing for striped bass and hybrid stripers.

While stripers are native to salt water, they naturally migrate into fresh water streams to spawn. Their eggs must remain in motion in order to hatch - so the fresh water rivers and streams which drain into the ocean become the ideal spawning grounds for stripers. Fish for stripers with medium to heavy rods, reels and line. Review a list of the best striper lures and baits before heading to the lake.
