    Anyone know where I can find a warm water discharge, also would it be fishable from the bank?

    call me crazy but I have never had much luck next to a warm water discharge, maybe I am fishing the wrong part? How are they supposed to be fished?

    hey cyncity,

    I have a warm water discharge right near me, how do you go about fishing for striper in this type of situation? There is always bait right near the discharge in the shallows (~2ft deep) but as the water flows out and away it gets deeper and I never mark any fish in the deeper water...:cool2:

    any help is appreciated!

    Bill

    Alright my friend, this is how we fish for the hybrids and stripers in our warm discharge. A lot of folks that striper fish turn there noses up at me for fishing this way but I catch more fish than them every time out as long as the shad are there. Most folks that target the stripers are using spooks, and jigs, etc. There is nothing that is better than the way I fish for them in my opinion. I normally take my throw net and throw net some medium size shad. Float the shad about a foot deep. The stripers are always lookin for shad on top. Let your float rig drift around and if they are there thick, you wont be able to keep up. I myself think it is funner to fish that way anyway. Nothing like seein that float rocket under!!! You don't even have to use a sinker. The float just kinda gives you an idea where you bait is. Lots of times the shad will be swimmin right on top and kappeewweee!!! fish on. They will normally not hit a dead shad. The more lively the better. Hope this helps
