Thanks for sharing this ..I live on lewis smith lake In alabama and we have some giant striper In the lake 48 LBS Plus ..the water Is Deep but lots of stripe, be safe and god bless

Mike Smedley says:

From shore your best bet is to fish cut bait on points. Net shad or maybe buy some – Live large bass minnows are good too. there are some GIANT Cats in there too.

Hey great video I am going to the southern shores of Kerr lake could you tell me what fish I could catch? Maybe stripers or bass or something of that sort and I would be fishing from shore

Awesome video! Would you be kind enough to tell me what boat you have and how long it is? That looks like the size I am looking for 🙂 Much appreciated.

I fished for Stripes this year March 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19 and they wore me out. I used a Rattle Trap and the biggest was near 20 lbs. Talk about fun, if any fisherman has not fished for Striped Bass when their running, your missing out. The Chattahoochee River in Columbus, Georgia has some of the greatest fishing especially when the White Bass are running. The game warden was checking everybody out including me and I had one over 22 inches…the limit is two over 22 inches in GA.

Thanks doctorx, Accurate 400 Boss Xtreme.

Excellent video, especially the part on zeroing in on bait with the side scan and then dropping the net on them. What kind of bait cast reels do you use ?

Mike Smedley says:

We got the bait right around the corner from longeood ramp in the second beaver pond, not the beaver pond near the mouth of grassy. We caught the fish right across from the ramp at longwood along the far bank, all within 1000yard stretch. Thanks for the comment! -Mike.

Very nicely done video. I am not sure if I have ever commented on a video before and it may be because you are fishing Kerr Lake 😉 but extremely well done. Dang that simrad is bad! I saw the bridge in the background and I usually recognize where someone might be. This didn’t look like the bridges in butchers at least I don’t think so. Whats real confusing is it don’t look like many leaves on the trees on the bank and the upload date is March 20th, I guess you’re up river? above Clarksville?

hotrodmcspoonjr says:

cfwegman says:

Thanks, Mike. As always, great video. Do you know of anybody who needs a kidney? I think I’ll sell one of mine and buy that Simrad set-up like yours!
