All About Striped Bass, History of Striped Bass, Migration Patterns of Striped Bass, Spawning of Striped Bass, Feeding Habits of Striped BassAll About Striped Bass
The Striped Bass, scientifically referred to as Morone saxatilis, known in the Chesapeake Bay region as Striper, Rockfish, Linesider, Roller, Squidhound and in the northern Atlantic states simply as “Bass,” is one of the most avidly pursued of all coastal sport fish. Striped Bass are native to most of the East Coast, ranging from the lower St. Lawrence River in Canada to the St. John's River in Northern Florida, and from Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana on the Gulf of Mexico to the open waters of the Atlantic. The primary range where most recreational and commercial anglers along the east coast pursue striped bass spans from Maine to North Carolina. However, Striped Bass are also found in many freshwater inland lakes along the east coast. The west coast of the United States also has a healthy striped bass fishery, mainly in the Delta area of northern California. While the east and west coast striped bass fisheries draw the most attention, striped bass can be found in thirty-one (31) states, facilitated by stocking programs in lakes and reservoirs.
