Striper Report for April 2010
Water Full Pool

The bite is wide open. My season started late with the first good day on March 9th. Since then the fish hae been eating good in the afternoon. All the major creeks are holding fish now. Good creeks are, Estanolle, Choestoea, Gumlog and Shoal Creeks on the Tugaloo. Martin, Coneross, and Eighteen Mile Creek are prime creeks on the Seneca River side. Twenty Six Mile Creek is also holding lots of fish. Throw bucktails, flukes, shad raps and other small lures that look like a small minnow. Cast to the bank on the wind blown banks. The afternoon bite is best till about mid April and then the morning bite will turn on and the herring bite will start. By mid May the morning bite will be better than the afternoon. The crappie have also moved shallow around structure and brush in less than six feet deep. Put a small jig three and four feet under a small float. Cast it around structure and twitch the float a foot or two and let the jig settle for a few seconds. Set the hook if the float moves at all. This is shallow water time. Everything moves to the warmest water, which is the shallowest.
