THAT’S one heck of a nice striped bass caught by Steve Jones this morning out on Beaver Lake on fly.
Indeed Steve picked up the RIO Striper line from us back in December to do dual duty on the lake and on the White River tailwaters.
According to Steve’s son Jake (read our piece on Jake and his 10-pound brown from December here) this was Steve’s first striper on fly, and one of five he hooked this morning. Beaver is a huge lake withe plenty of opportunity to get yourself where the fish aren’t _I speak from experience here _ but Steve’s walleye trolling has put him in touch with the movements of stripers and the bait they live on in the lake.
Great fish Steve
