Heres a few I have been able to get in the boat over the years from Cherokee Lake, TN and also Smith Mountain Lake, VA This thread reminded me I need to get out and fish more species this year :) All of these caught on Live Shad


Out of curiosity, is there a reason I always see guy's with the bigger striper using a lip grip?

One of the most awesome sights I've ever seen was on Lake Hartwell in 1987. We were out late at night fishing and had a couple floating lights out beside the boat to bring in the bait. Some really big stripers, AND I MEAN REALLY BIG! , tore into those baitfish. They looked like fighter jets ripping thru them. I was the only one awake and I knew we didn"t have tackle to handle those , so I just watched. I"ll never forget that sight.

For me its easier to hold the the grip than a wet mouth, especially when they start flopping around.

I ordered a 12' Okuma surf rod, and I have a big ass surf reel I'm putting on it. Just strung it with 60lb test braid. Hoping to be able to put a big shad right out in the middle of the channel.
