Striper Fishing Tips: The big fish are on the banks early in the mornings in October.

Cast Pencil Poppers and big Chug Bugs for vicious strikes in shallow water.

Mid-morning change your lures to four inch sassy shad on a one ounce jighead. Favorite colors are white-glow and chartreuse fleck.

Always keep your eyes on the seagulls. They can locate schools of stripers roaming in open water.

Live shad fishing is also is also an excellent way to catch stripers. Locate the fish on the ledges, anchor up and place your bait three turns off the bottom. The best depth will average thirty feet deep.
