Lou Gabric, owner of Hummingbird Hideaway Resort on Norfork Lake, displays two of the five stripers he hooked late Sunday morning on the lake, keeping three. He says the on-again, off-again striper bite has not been typical of the lake this year. He found these stripers just 5-20 feet down in 100-plus feet of water. "I do spend quite a bite of time looking around for striped bass, but when you find them you will have a blast," he says.
