Fishing For Striper

From the mixing bowl to the serving plate, we'll explore the life cycle of the striped bass. Come with us to Richmond Hill Hatchery near Savannah, Georgia and learn more about how these fish spawn and how they are distributed throughout the state.

The Savannah River striped bass population was once the largest in Georgia. Their population drastically declined in the 1980s due to habitat alterations in flow patterns and salinity levels. Tim Barrett and Gabe Gaddis are two biologists ready to get their hands wet and check it out for themselves on the Savannah River.

Striper fishing is popular on the some of reservoirs of Georgia. We'll troll Lake Lanier with Randy Edwards, a veteran striper fishing guide, and Ken Duke an editor for Game and Fish Magazine and an avid bass fisherman.
