The late fall and summer months are some the best times to experience Striper
fishing at Lake Greeson.
It is not unusual to hear statements like "That was some of the best striper
action for I’ve ever experienced,"
Striper Guide Ron Hawley uses 7' foot Shakespeare Ugly Stik rods
and trolling reels with built-in line counters. A 2-ounce egg sinker is placed
on the main line, and below that a size 3 barrel swivel. To the swivel’s other
eye, Hawley attaches a 5' foot leader of 20 pound mono, to which he ties a 3/0
Eagle Claw Kahle hook.
The first order of business is to locate the fish, which Hawley does on his
Lowrance unit. He then baits the hooks on each combo with live shad and lowers
them to the depth where stripers are holding. It won’t be long until one takes a
bait. When that fish is landed, the line-counter reel allows you to return the
bait to the same depth.
The daily striper limit on Lake Greeson is three per angler.
