Nice stripper, I think they were introduced to Lake Talquin in the early to mid 80's. I have read that as many as 10-20 are stocked annualy in Talquin.

Great fish. Gotta love the bama rig. I plan on trying one this weekend in the salt.

Nothing since the Civil War has caused such wailing, moaning and gnashing of teeth by grown men :lol:

The way some people talk about it, you'd think it was the same as dynamiting fish.

If Sheriff Larry Campbell finds out there are strippers at Lake Talquin, the number of succesful hookups will drop to zero, pronto.

I have heard that Alabama rig is so good it has been prohibited from tournament fishing. Not sure how true that is though. Nice Striper though. JW
