Another important piece of equipment that is essential for fishing daylight fishing is polarized sunglasses.
It makes it that much easier to spot baitfish and even see the terrain floor you will be wading in. And obviously help protect your eyes from harmful uv rays.
Sunscreen and bug spray are no brainers right?

Popping plugs or surface lures are most effective during low light conditions
such as dawn or dusk.
Metal lures, such as Kastmasters or Hopkins are best during bright sunlight
conditions.
Swimming lures, both shallow swimmers and deep divers work best during
the day when fish are less likely to come to the surface to feed and at
night when they are close to the bottom and less active.
Bucktail Jigs and eel lures like the sluggo and tube lures take fish
during both day and night. These should be worked along the bottom
at an extremely slow retrieve even better when a piece of pork rind or
squid strip is added to the hook."


I'm confused about these two statements.

The first says that the storm shads surface lures would be best used for low light (night or morning)

But then the second says that during the night, the stripers are more likely to be at the bottom, not the surface.

My question is, so why not just fish on the bottom at night using another method, rather than using a storm shad surface lure @ night? The bolded statements seem to be contradictory, what am I missing here?

Your taking this to literal man! Experiment for yourself, get an idea from this then try all of these yourself. Don't just use one method when you fishing change it up, then you will be successful.

I know it isn't to be taken word for word but the way I understood it was that he was talking about tendencies that the fish generally abide by as a species.

Great thread going here.
One thing I see many do not buy or use is vinyl tubing/hook protector. The tubing helps protect the point and helps keep down hook rash on your lures. You can buy this online or at many stores like Lowes/HD, local hardware and tackle for a couple bucks for several ft.. I even use some wider stuff to cover some of my lures

The storm shads I'm referring to aren't surface lures. They are resin lures and swim in the middle or the lower part of the water column. Good idea to use them around the rocks or structure where they mimic baby black fish, and weakies.

I gotta agree this is a great thread that is loaded with info. However I must say when it comes to hooks, it's a zero and not the letter O, and it has to do with sizing. When it comes to hook size the bigger the # the smaller the hook. A size 32 hook is the smallest while a size 19/0 is the largest. So from smallest to largest the sizing would go something like this: 32, 30, 28,.....2, 1, 1/0, 2/0,.....19/0. The zero is named aught. It's basically the same principals as sizing wire guage. Aught in fishing hooks is not specific to thickness alone, it seems to define the gap for the most part.

Thanks to Striperjim for posting this thread. It's very, very informative. I have a few of the lures pictured, and will eventually add the remainder to my current collection. I had been wondering about what kind of bag would be good to carry lures to the water (I currently use a back back with Plano 3700 boxes to store everything) which works, but the Aquaskinsz Lure bag with lure tubes pictured in the thread is what I've been looking for. Thanks again. Keep up the good work. Another mystery resolved...

How big should the rod be? I have a 10' rod I normally use for tog fishing but today I saw a guy at Indian River Inlet with I think a 5-6' rod throwing a plug into the inlet and hook a nice big 25-30" striper within 10 minutes. Also my saltwater mainly consists of sinkers and hooks, but I do have a couple 1/2 ounce diamond sinkers and a couple spoons with treble hooks. Can those be good with striper fishing? I want to expand my fishing knowledge.

Also this would be from jetties/shorelines as I don't have a boat. :P

This is a pretty good thread.
I am new the VABeach area and have never fished saltwater before. I have done some freshwater Hybrid fishing before but thats about it. I am wanting to get into striper fishing soon. I have a 9 foot MH pole, that I think will do the trick, however I am going to have to buy a new real, i just dont think my real has enough ass in it to catch stripers.

I think I will probably be doing my fishing from a boat.
