I saw some pictures in the Savannah Morning News where a couple of guys caught some stripers on the Little Ogeechee and Ogeechee Rivers, and it got me to wondering if they have shown up on the Savannah River yet? I found out from one of my posts from last year that December and January are good months, so I was wondering if they were early this year. Some questions: How fast do you troll? Is trolling the most effective way to catch them? Can you get them around some of the rocks along the shoreline or are they deeper in the channel? What kind of lures? I'm a striper Newbie, and I have made it my mission to try and catch one this year. Any and all help would be really appreciated.

Thanks,
SwampGrizz

I got real excited until I realized there was only one 'p' in your topic title......

- The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but obtainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

I think that the stripers will be a LOT cheaper than the strippers in the long run. At my age, I would probably have more fun with the stripers too.

Nov 14 fishing report from Capt Judy said "While fishing in the Savannah River areas this past week our customers got to enjoy a steady striped bass bite. While using live shrimp as bait under small adjustable floats the action was strong. "

The schoolies are here, 20 fish flurries then dead and the big loner fish are moving through too.

Adjustable corks with big shrimp, menhaden or mullet underneath works best but drifting a bottom fish finder rig close to structure and letting it soak can work too.

Picking fish up on swim baits, diving plugs and flies is a good way to cover water...

Savannah River trolling with large Rapala lures will net large lunkers or at least it has in the past. Back in 1974, I got a 40 and a 38 pounder on at the very same time. Landed both and had them mounted. Go for it.

Capt. Jimmy,
Thanks for your reply. Were you trolling near structure, or down deep/on top, or near the shoreline? I don't want your secret honeyhole, just a few general tips on what to look for. Thanks again for sharing with us newbies.
