Stipped bass fishing

It is good fishing here. I have in-laws in Annapolis Royal and the stripers are thick by the tidal power plant. We have a good run of very large pollock (Boston Bluefish) some over the 20 lb mark that make up some great action as well.

strippers

I realize this a hunting fourm .Maybe I shouldn't have put stripped bass on here I just figured it's part of the outdoors .Anyway here is a little more gossip I heard around the 15th of may while talking to the fishery officer .He told me they are trying to get the stripped bass on the endangered speices list .He told me there was 3 rivers with strippers and now the Stewiac is the only one left .Maybe next year there may not be any fishing strippers .Has anyone else heard anything about this ?

I haven't heard that. I know the Annapolis River is still very abundant with strippers and anglers. The regulations are getting tighter each year so who knows... maybe they will start protecting them. The long time anglers I have talked to say the catch is down from years past but not too bad overall. Think

I use small smelt that I caught in the winter but just about any silver lure will work I'm sure.
