    STRIPER LOCATIONS

    Thank you!

    STRIPER LOCATIONS

    Could anyone offer their input on what areas are good to search for stripers on Cherokee. Do they use the river and creek channels as travel routes? Shallow water areas near deep water bends? Or would it be just to do a lot of graphing and hope to run into a big school? I realize to look for gull activity in the winter to find them. Do they typically travel the same routes when they migrate up and down the lake?

    WHAT FLUOROCARBON LEADER TO USE?

    Thanks! I’m going to try a few different brands and see which I like best. Only reason I would use it at all is because it kinda disappears in the water. Otherwise I’ve always liked mono but if the fluorocarbon increases our chances of catching stripers I’m all ears.

    WHAT FLUOROCARBON LEADER TO USE?

    Wondering what fluorocarbon leader to use for striper that’s tough against abrasions. The leader i use now breaks a lot while fighting smallmouth. It’s not fluorocarbon it’s fluorocarbon coated. Decided to start spooling 100% fluorocarbon main line but need advice on the leader. Seaquar Abraiz maybe? Also how long should the leader be for downlining striper in Cherokee?

    THERMOCLINE

    Makes sense but curious if the thermocline has already setup in say mid-June at roughly 30 feet why striper are in 50 feet of water?

    CHEROKEE LAKE RECORD STRIPER

    Thanks, too bad! Guess my next personal goal at Cherokee will be a 20 plus pounder, although I’d rather see my son hook into a striper. He hasn’t had that experience yet, hope to this winter.

    THERMOCLINE

    I realize the thermocline is over and done with after the fall turnover. Does it set up in June at Cherokee? I’m guessing it would be 25-30 feet from the surface? Does this play a vital role in the summertime when downlining for stripers? I’ve noticed in mid- June sometimes the stripers are at 50 feet, thought that would be out of their comfort zone oxygen wise. Unless there is current down there from the old main channel or creek channels supplying oxygen?

    CHEROKEE LAKE RECORD STRIPER

    Anybody know what the lake record might be? If not what’s your personal best? I realize most just have fun fishing and don’t worry about those things. I’m a novice but trying to learn more and more about it. Retirement is just 32 months away and plan on spending many days on Cherokee. Anyway my personal best is just shy of 13 lbs, caught downlining with an alewife just outside the restricted area near the dam in mid June 2017.

    THREADFIN SHAD FOR STRIPERS

    When gizzards or alewives are hard to come by does anyone use threadfins? Only threadfins that come up in my net are 3-4 inchers, do you put more than one on the same hook?
