Hey all, I've really enjoyed reading the content on this sight. I have a slight fishing problem as in I enjoy tight lines more than beer and football and just about anything else. This is my first post and hopefully not my last. I live near Lake Rhodhiss and just took my first trip out on the lake this week. Beautiful lake and very remote! Caught one nice LM bass on a spinner and 1 crappie over one of the new fish attractors. My question is where and how to fish the lake in the winter months. I would love to target stripers but have no idea where in the lake they might be. I'm more of a fly fisherman but I'm expanding to include the local lakes. Thanks in advanced!

Thanks for the report, and welcome!

I've only been on Rhodhiss once, and if I recall there aren't really any creek mouths to concentrate on. I'd probably try down by the dam around any humps or big points using shad on down and flat lines.

Lake Hickory is a little better known for the striper action, but Rhodhiss is a great bass fishery.

Thanks for the tips. I haven't fished down toward the dam yet. I'll update when I get down that way and give it a go.

I've heard that in the spring you can throw a variety of things up under the branches, shallow, and catch really nice stripers...
