What is a Striped Bass?

Striped bass (Morone saxatilis), which you may know by the name striper, linesider, or rockfish, are one of the most popular game fish in the United States found both in fresh and saltwater. So popular in fact, it is the state fish of Maryland, Rhode Island, and South Carolina.

Originally a saltwater fish, striped bass have been successfully stocked in freshwater lakes and rivers across the United States, beginning a rich history of fisheries as early as the Colonial Period. However, they do need to be restocked periodically, as it is rare for them to spawn in freshwater as they do in salt.

They have a streamlined, silvery body that is marked with longitudinal stripes that start at their gills and run to the base of their tail.

Striped Bass Fishing Reports from Our Damn Good Guides. See more striped bass fishing reports.

    July 2022 has had its ups and downs, sound like....fishing? The heat has been like any other, in July, hot and dry. Don't plan on a limit of fish, as if you got 20 plus fish you had a good day. Someone will always argue with me but the majority had tough days, plenty big fish, but a limit takes lot of patience. I have had good days and tough days but still love my customers as they all know the up and downs. Most enjoy being on the water more than catching a limit! I have used trolling when bait was not working; and bait when trolling was not working. I am using slabs, Arigs, whatever they will hit, bite.
