We’ve reached our final Striper Migration Map of 2019! Big bass have settled in along the coast and we should see some great bites on the new moon tides as we head into the Fourth of July holiday. We marked four areas that have been giving up big stripers, but there are plenty of places that could produce your new personal best. Keep sharing your catches with us on social media using the tag #stripermigration.
