    Cumberland Stripers

    Are the stripers spawning now?

    Haven't been able to fish in a long time and want to go in the morning. Historically the spawn has been tough fishing for me. Any other recent information anybody would like to share on the stripers would be greatly appreciated.

    About mid way back in the creeks from 15 to 30 feet deep, they are still spawning and scattered. Bass are biting like crazy too, itís hard to keep bait on the hooks at times. Top water bite is also pretty good at night right now.

    i only caught one fish that hadn't spawned out this weekend but lost a monster at the side of the boat that was fat as well. Fishing was tough Saturday for me but much easier Sunday. Part of the reason it was a little easier Sunday was adjustments and probably one more day through the spawn. I had a keeper double Sunday and a triple of shorts Saturday so the fish will start packing up again really soon. The post spawn fish are a little lethargic but eager to eat. That means that took the bait well but didn't have a lot of energy once they were hooked. That will change very quickly. LOL

    Thanks for the updates.

    I ended up not going Sunday due to threat of storms, but I heard the weather was just fine. I had a friend fish with a guide Sunday and only managed 1 keeper fish so I know the fishing has been tough at times.

    Tuesday 5/14 I caught three small stripers on a 110 jerkbait while bass fishing. All three came off one long flat shallow point mid way back in a creek about 45 minutes after daylight. Bass were biting also but the size was small. Most SM came on the 110. The LM and KY's were mostly on a small creature bait but I did catch bass on 4-5 different baits. It's hard for me to complain about small fish when numbers were good and all species were biting.

    I had not been on Cumberland since the first week in April. I had multiple people tell me in the last 6 weeks that I need to go to Cumberland but like a fool I ignored their advice.
