"Striperchum"is a term that has garnered several
definitions in the sport of fishing for the striped bass. For some,
it's an art form. To others, it is a science constantly studied and
practiced. Yet, to others, it means simply sharing their favorite
past-time (fishing for striped bass) with preferred company.
To one striper fisherman (or woman) striperchum may represent a batch of freshly chopped up
bunker, mackerel, blueback herring or other oily, bloody fish scraps to be thrown overboard or
dispersed from mesh or perforated containers around one's fishing perimeter, with
hopes of creating a trail of scent to stimulate hungry stripers into a feeding frenzy.
To another rockfish angler it may be canned cat food or fresh chicken livers used in place
of fish scraps, due to their strong scent and nominal expense.
Yet, to most veteran striper anglers, it means spending time and adventures with a companion
or two. Serious striper fishermen seem to have an intangible, though admirable bond with each
other. They share tactics, share equipment, share stories, pictures, bait, food and may even
share a honey-hole or two.
For us here at Striperchum.com it means all of the above . . . and more . . .(like, . . . to us it
could even mean our dog, Baxter . . . the ultimate fishing companion) . . . . it's a veritable 'play
on words' if you will!

legendary track record of bringing success and abounding joy to all involved, should never be
