Since this warm-weather Striper season is just getting cranked up, I felt the need to give one of our locals some well-deserved notoriety… The Shad Taxi. These guys have all the answers when it comes to landing that dream Striper that’s been swimmin’ around in your head!
Get on board with Captain Todd and see just what can happen with the perfect mix of the right equipment, the right timing and just good ol’ Smith Mountain Lake fishing experience. The Shad Taxi also has a very informative website that offers all the information you’ll need to get excited about landing that monster Striper and how to get in contact and schedule your good time on our Smith Mountain Lake waters. Just a quote from the Shad Taxi website:
I purchased a house on Smith Mountain Lake in 1999 and since then have spent roughly 300 days each year fishing for stripers. (Yes, I am insane when it comes to striper fishing) Because of the enormous amount of recreational activity that has grown on the lake, we now primarily use live bait as our means of targeting stripers. We still utilize artificials when the situation is right and when artificials can produce higher numbers than live bait.
Take the time, give the Shad Taxi a call and enjoy one of Smith Mountain Lake’s greatest pastimes… landing a Striper!
