No we are not talking about the Crazy Horse nightclub in Myrtle Beach. Mark Taylor of Roanoke.com gives us a primer on tactics for catching coastal stripers this winter.
The stripers typically hang around in the bay until water temperatures dip into the low 40s. Sometimes that can happen in early December, but in recent years the fish have been around into January. When the fish leave the bay they head south. Often, huge schools can be found just off the Virginia and North Carolina beaches. That ocean fishery is becoming more and more popular in January and February. Sometimes the fish even blitz the beaches.
