The anticipation of the hit, right up to when the plug comes out of the water. Watching the boil as it crushes a top water, or the slam of a subsurface strike. eels bring a level of excitement almost on par with plugs, because they are fished in almost identical circumstances. On occasion a bunker head can be used in almost the same manner, drifted in a rip, or tossed into the wash of a reef. I don't even own a sinker anymore.
I have fished Bass in any and all method known for my area. Caught boatloads, literally.
trolled, drifted, and anchored a chum slick.
My life has brought me to a point that I desire the challenge of hunting for Stripers, it's no longer fishing to me. I would rather go fishless on a plug in the surf, than to land 50 from a boat using a chunk of fish meat.
Roger That!
i don't hate people with Bait.. i fish along side my friends when they're bait fishing but i'll always choose the Plug.. nothing more exciting than "playing" the bait in areas where you can feel the fish lurking. in my opinion it's Fair game using Lures...

*unless your starving on an island.. then use whatever you want

I guess then, me trolling by with my 30' sportfisher and my under water cam backed up with my $4000 Lorance is out of the question !

I don't know if this has been said, but bloodworms and sandworms are on a whole different level. The sandworms do not catch as many stripers in my experience. It doesn't help that they fall apart when you're hooking them. Bloods are my vote.
