Good info you had there Gartooth,
I'm not a Striper expert by any means but I was fishing on Canyon in the middle of Aug. 5 or 6 years back in a PB (sorry) about a mile from the dam, I turned around and it looked like it was raining upside down Striper were bustin' the surface so hard. I went over and threw everything I had and finally caught a small one, when it hit the deck it spit out a tiny clear minnow. Luckily I had my sons tackle box and I tied on a small white Crappie jig. After that it was a hookup almost everycast.
They would leave and then pop up again a few hundred yards away, I would run over and get right back in the action. I couldn't believe they were feasting on such small bait. It was a blast , I would compare the fight of a striper to that of a good Red in the flats.
Foot Note: When I was kid (30+ years ago) fishing on Bob Hall pier in CC a guy caught a big fish and didn't know what it was so he gave it to me, I took it home to my Dad and it was a Striper, It was huge, the tail drug the ground when I carried it.

Eventually I am going to try for stripers under one of these dams along the highland lakes chain. Good sized ones have been caught from all the dams over the years. Longhorn is closest to me, so I'll give it a shot one day when the conditions are right, but would be willing to try Tom Miller or Mansfield too.
