The striped bass is almost always known to as the “striper.” Like largemouth
bass fishing, striped bass fishing has caught on to become one of the most
popular sports and leisured activities in North America. In fact, in some places
like Cape Code, it is one of the most acclaimed forms of angling throughout the
season. Both children and adults can participate in striped bass fishing.
Although bass can be found in many different spots throughout the North
American continent, the striped bass often resides on the Eastern Seaboard,
ranging from the Gulf of St. Lawrence to Southern Georgia.
Part of the reasons why striped bass fishing is more popular in Northeastern
states and Mid-Atlantic states, other than Southeastern states, is because the
perfect spawning temperature is somewhere in the mid-range for striped bass.
Normally,the striped bass will spawn when the water is between 59 and 65 degrees
Fahrenheit. If it gets hotter than that, the quality of the eggs can be affected
by the higher water temperatures. This means that the striper have to travel to
deeper and cooler waters when the temperature of the water starts to
In the Springtime, striped bass fishingis is becoming even more popular in
the Northeastern United States, as striper travels up the Eastern Seaboard to
spawn to waters of optimum temperature. Usually, the female will lead and
several males will follow – the purpose, of course, is to spawn further North
and down the coastline.
In the Fall, again, as water temperatures cool off, striper re-emerge from
colder, deeper water to be visible on the Eastern Seaboard, which means that
striped bass fishing once again becomes extremely popular.
No matter where you reside or what season of the year it happens to be,
striped bass fishing is almost guaranteed to be an interesting endeavor, as
striper is one of the largest variations of bass – and is known for putting up a
fierce fight against anglers. Good luck with your Bass fishing
