Lake Cumberland striper fishing

Went striper fishing this weekend for the first time, and wow, what a blast. We used live shad and caught a bunch. Here is a little taste of the weekend.

Leaving the harbor on day two.


Trolling eight rods with 6 planar boards.


My first keeper of the day.


My second.


The first day's catch. There is one more up on the cleaning table. 9 each day for a total of 18. 2 per person is the limit.


This guy was a heck of a fight.


Also had landed some bass and gar.




I don't have any pictures of the second days catch or the bass, those will be sent my way soon. As well as some other cool pics.

Awesome! How'd you get the shad for bait?

Re: Lake Cumberland striper fishing

The guides we went with said they leave lights on at night shining in the water by their boats. That causes algae/zooplankton? to grow and the shad school there and feed on it. Then before each day trip they throw nets and catch them. Not entirely sure on the process, but it seems to work.
