Welcome to our Striped Bass Fishing Home Page
Striped bass, also called stripers, are silver with 7 or 8 dark horizontal stripes that are not broken. Their body is longer than white bass and they have 2 patches of teeth on the tongue. The hybrids, a combination of the striped bass and white bass, have silvery sides with broken horizontal stripes that are unbroken above and below the lateral line. Big stripers over 30 pounds are not unheard of and fish in the 5 to 7 pound range are considered average in fresh water. In the ocean, 15 to 30 pound fish are common and even bigger fish in the 40 to 50 pound range are possible.

Winter Fishing for Striped Bass
The winter brings the end of the East Coast migration that most anglers enjoyed for 5 to 7 months depending on what part of the coast you live on. In freshwater, you have plenty of options because many of the better striped bass destinations are in the southern part of the U.S. The fishing will be typical to fall fishing because these lakes don’t freeze over.
A Great Season for Trip Planning
If you don’t plan on getting down south to fish during the winter, this is a great time to do some research to help plan a striped bass trip for the upcoming year.
