i have not been fishing for striper lately, but live bait is always the most consistent choice in catching them. Use big gizzard shad and skipjack herring for your big daddy stripers. You also want your bait to be fresh caught. Not the half dead bait you buy at your local gas station on your way to lake.

If your going to throw artificial bait also, do it only in early morning or late when the sun is down. Use your live bait when the sun is high. If im throwing artificial bait in the morning my choice would be a soft jerk bait or a big shallow diving crankbait.

Hope that answered your questions.

no prob glad to help.Down your way i would prob use gizzard shads cuts or whole small ones.from shore heres a killer rig ssetup.Slip a fishfinder clip on put a bead then tie a blood knot to swivel.from swivel tie a 3-4' leader of 20#flourocarbon to a #6/0 circle hook add bait.cast out from shore put in rod holder and waitwhen fish strikes resit hurge to set hook,slowly reel up the circle hook will set itself in the corner of fishes mouth.This set up will catch anything that swims ENJOY

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
