Atlanta is hot in August, so striped bass seek thermal refuge in cool rivers. This
15-pounder probably lives most of its life in West Point Lake, 60 miles south of town,
but it was caught smack dab in the middle of Atlanta on the Chattahoochee. The
best way to fight these fish is from a canoe, so they can give you a sleigh ride!
