Late May and June
Stripers on The Connecticut River
Schoolie Stripers are magic on light line and moving lures. Topwater is my favorite.
The Stripers chase Herring around The River and we chase the Stripers.
These fish are arm-burners when you fight them in the current.
What you pay your dues for.
Mark got this twenty five pound cow on light tackle soon after we launched. The ten minute fight was something to behold.
Thunderstorms shortened the day but not the enjoyment of catching this beautiful striper.
