Just wanted to say i joined the site. I've heard about it for a long while, just never remembered to check it out. Finally and Glad i did. A 'lil 411 onme. I live at Smith Mountain lake in virginia. Born and raised, its my home lake.... So hince the name, CatsNstripers. I grew up Catfishing and Striper fishing on SML, so obivisouly its my passion. Although I dont descriminate, if you wanna go perch fishing, i'll go!. I use to fish Claytor lake regular, but not as much as i use to. I' still enjoy getting up there tho for Stripers and Hybrids and that lake has some huge channel cats. But I've switch'd over and been going to Buggs Island alot more now after blues. But Mostly I'm fishing here at home. I fish mostly Flatheads or stripers. I'll also light tackle some channel cats aswell. Do a 'lil crappie fishing or smallmouth fishing now and again aswell. Anyway's, Anyone fishing SML or coming to SML feel free to shoot me a PM and ask any question you like. I'm on the water year round. Any one see me out. Bone Colored Carolina Skiff Semi-V with a 115 yamaha, thats me.
