What is a Striper?

Commonly known as a striper, the striped bass is a member of the bass family, which includes white perch and white bass.  Striped bass can be caught on a number of baits including: shad, eels, night crawlers, leeches, large minnows and earthworms.

Naturally a saltwater fish, the striper can live it's entire life in freshwater.  Striped bass in Beaver Lake have been introduced by the Arkansas game and fish commission (agfc).

In winter they remain active, although going into deeper water when the upper layers of the lake cool below 60 degrees. This makes the striper more challenging to catch in the winter months, but the added difficulty only adds to the thrill of successfully landing a great fish.  The striped bass is a beautiful fish in color and symmetry, and is quite delicious to eat.

In the spring of the year the striped bass runs up the rivers and into other fresh water places to spawn - and then again late in the fall to shelter. The fall run is the best. It can be taken, however, nearly all the year round, and of all sizes.

Trolling for bass is an excellent sport for amateurs and more experienced anglers alike. Big 1's typically uses live shad on multiple lines to improve your chances of a productive trip.
