August was still producing stripers on live bait. Typical August trips- 4 out 5 trips produced good, then we would have a tough day 1 out of 5 days. September will be a lot like August fishing. My advice for September would be fish the lower end of the lake, fish early, and be prepared for tough fishing after 9 am. Even though you are going to see some striper marks up high on your electronics, the deeper marks more than likely are going to be your catchable fish. Stripers will still be feeding on smaller bait fish in September, so keep that in mind when your gearing up for a day of fun here. Bring lots of patience and plenty of bottled water because in September’s heat here in Alabama, it takes both to have a successful day of fishing.
Until next time stay safe , try to stay hydrated and catch a big fish for me!
