IMO your Trevala should be fine. For Stripers you don't want the plug racing on top of the water. Big Stripers will not waste the energy to chase a popper around. You want the popper to stay in the strike zone as long as possible. Try it out and see how it goes.

Good luck Fat Boy. Make sure your hooks are sharp and knots are strong. That's Cow Bass country!
