Halco Tremblers, they are HOT and have been for quite some time ,Get the small 4in size for surf casting , and drag the Giant Trembler from your boat , want deeper go with the G.T.Trembler the only hard part is ordering them ,I used to be able to get them at my bait store close by but Sevenstrand stopped importing them ,they are from down under ,Austrailia go to the Halco lure site and order them they slam catch fish. Last year from the beach, on six casts I got 2 large flounder, 2 speckled trout, 1 school striper and an oyster toad......all on the 4in size . take a tip try some..........Andrew

My (FAVORITE) way to catch stripers is pluggin' although there's a time and a place for everything...In the FarRockaway surf which I fish,clams work excellent at the beginning of the season...Later on,small KingFish are the predominant baitfish and these also work excellent live or chunked...

There is no one size fits all answer. I catch most of my fish on tube & worm. That being said there are times and places it doesn't catch a thing.


If someone said you could only have one set-up to fish with it would be a Smiling Bill 2oz bucktail on wire line.

i striper fish the hudson river every year up towards catskill and was wondering a good alternative to herring.Some other kind of bait or lure that might work good from shore(i ocassionally troll stickbaits from a boat with success).Alot of suggestions I see seem to be aimed towards fishing brackish water near the mouths of rivers and im further up river.will eels work?

They should have asked what do you prefer bait or artificials? i love to use plugs(check out striperlife.com), bucktails and tins as artificials but when it comes to bait, live lining bunker or eels is HOMERUN ....

I rarely use bait. I walk up and down the beach using wood plugs and lures looking for that hot spot or working the jetties with my fly rod. Guess Iím a purest at heart; I like to work for my rewards. (to each his own)
If a fish will attack a manmade object, then they will eat any type of bait. My guess is if there are ells running and you have a squid on the hook and if one stripper had enough of ells and likes squid he will go for the squid. Just like us humans we all have our individual tastes. I been fishing too long it really doesnít matter whatís on the hook itís a hit or miss situation.
The only bait that I bring with me is chicken necks. When the conditions are not right I go to the bays throw in some cab pots and fish for flounder.

I would say yes. Eels are awesome. Worked everywhere i have tried them unless there were just no fish around. Bass can't resist them.
