Anyone fish Norfork lake for stripers?
I love fishing for stripers at Norfork. Maybe not the biggest stripers around, but we fish for them on light line. 8# is all we use. I have a friend down there that is a striper guide. Robert Lee of leesliteline, he got me hooked on using light line. You never know what you are going to get into. Stripers, hybrids, whites, walleye, catfish, spotted bass, largemouth and smallmouth bass all seem to hang out on the same points, sometimes all at the same time. March, April, and May, I think are the best because they are up shallow. Lots of good top water at this time also.
Sorry about the long post, I got excited thinking about fishing.

I guess your casting for them striper?
Big Cat I fish Lake Norman for striper like you they are not big one's mostly 5-7.5 lb.er's
What is the best lure or bait for the striper and Hybrids on your lake we have some hybrids but they have only been in the Lake a couple of years and I don't think any have been landed or I haven't heard of any yet, I troll u-rigs and have had good luck but I need to try casting to shallower water.

In the spring we fish the points using live threadfin shad, cast up to the bank. as for top water I use Zara spooks in the daytime and Rogues and Long-A stick baits at night. Two or three weeks ago someone caught a 37 pound striper, and I think someone caught one close to fifty last year. Lots of big hybrid and whites also.

I enjoy the whites/hybrids that we have here, but have only fished stripers once in NW Ark. It must be exciting to hit such a variety on light tackle. There would be a lot of difference between a white and a pure striper. Hope to make it down someday. Are the whites running now?
