    Bubbakat, I take it you are fishin them in a lake. What we do is wait till evening when they go on the feed and chase the bait fish to the top, you can see the little buggers runnin for there lives. The Striper's run in schools and will hang for a while in one spot. We cast those shallow running jointed rapallas in gold and white and fire tiger, also just a good old stick bait like a spook works well too. Some times you will get two or three right in a row, sometimes all you get is frustrated! During the day trolling a deep running crankbait through schools of shad works sometimes. Good luck and keep em tight.

      Usually use live trout for strippers here, but if lookiing at lures, a white 3/4 oz bucktail jig with a 5 inch snatrix trailer, or a big rat-l-trap in silver/black or blue/black.The jig works great with the schoolers also - gets below the smaller ones that are beating the surface and down to the big ole smart ones that are waiting for the fish parts to fall past their noses!
      Rules of Repair:
      1. If it ain't broke, give me a hammer, it will be!
      2. You only need 2 tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move, and it should, use WD-40. If it moves, and it shouldn't, use Duct Tape!
      3. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

        i've used live trout with great success, but is'nt it illegal? i was at a lake one day, years ago! they had stocked trout that day. i noticed big stripers comming in close to shore chasing the trout. so thats where i got the idea to try live trout. these days, if i go for stripers, i try to find something that looks like a trout.

          Here on Cape Cod, I use Striper Strike poppers, Hopkins lure, Deadly **** (blue) and something called a Beach Bomber (basically a black swimmer with a ball bearing inside that clicks as it swims). Dark lures at night, silver (Hopkins, Deadly ****) during the day.Live bait? People here use eels.

              Bubba, its been awhile since I fished for stripers but I always used a Bass Buster and had great luck. One day I even wore it to the hospital hanging from my nostril.

                        In PA it is legal to use trout if you buy them or they are legal size. If you buy them, keep the receipt.
