Got this nice 14 pound striper this morning while trolling for speckled trout on the East River in Navarre. I caught him about 1/2 mile upstream from the 87 bridge on a chartreuse/white berkley gulp jerk bait, rigged on a weighted weedless hook. Unfortunately, that was about all the action we had today even though we ran a lot and fished some other places. Not sure where the trout are now, except maybe in Mulat Baylou, LOL. Also, not sure why my last two stripers both weighed 14 pounds. Weird. AP

Best time to fish East River IMO. Feast or famine, but the boat traffic that the river is seeing from Mar to Sep has been thru the roof the last few years. I live less than 5 mins from the launch and always seem to drive to Yellow just because the lot seems full all the time. Great striper!!!

Thanks Cat for the info. I've been having trouble getting many trout this year. Thanks everybody for the compliments on the fish. Hey AUGUY, when you get back, let me know if you want to hit the water. I think we probably live in the same neighborhool as I am also about 5 minutes from that launch ramp. AP

AP---- Your fish may have been from the same year-class stocking (2010-2011). Congrats on two nice fish. Now go catch one on Escambia River and you have a river slam.............:thumbup:
