Members of the Smith Mountain Striper Club visited Bridgewater Marina on Saturday to feature their boats and offer information to those who were interested in stopping by.

The Club's goal is to preserve and enjoy the land locked striper angling quality in the freshwater lakes of the Commonwealth of Virginia. The major elements fundamental to the Club's purposes are Education, Conservation, Community and Social.

“Everybody can walk around and get to know how we all have our boats rigged up for Stripers,” Striper Club member and event organizer Chris Bradley said. “It’s a way for the club members to get together and have a nice afternoon.”

The Striper Club has over 100 members and holds meetings on the first Friday of every month at the Moneta Community Center on Rucker Rd, unless otherwise noted. The Club also helps marine biologist Dan Wilson do stocking and the Club helps with preservation.
