I've noticed when I hook my bait through both lips, they don't get enough oxygen and get less active or most cases die....

We usually run the hook in the mouth and out a nostril, so they can breathe. It will keep our baits frisky for a long time if needed

Someone asked a question on this. Cant find the question but did find the thread.

Default Fresh Water Stripers

I am in the Branson MO area and the Stripers are beginning to run but the water is warm and low. The water below the dam is about 3 ft. deep. What should I use for bait to land these babies. It seems so out of their inviornment. Warm shallow water. Any ideas on this subject? :

here's A Couple Of Tips You May Find Helpfull:

first Cull Out Your Baits And Select The Best Size
match Your Terminal Tackle Set Up With The Tides Influence
i Almost Always Use A 3 Way Set Up With A2/0 Treble
a 3way Keeps The Baitfish In The Zone,not Rideing To The Surface
use As Light A Line As Possible On Both Leader And Reel
remeber What You Feel So Does The Fish
use As Light A Lead As Needed:this Will Be Dictated By Tide,wind And Speed Of Drift

It depends on the bait I'm using. For slinging eels, a 7/0 Gami Octopus thats snelled on 30 or 40 lb. mono works well when fishing shallow structure. I also use this same rig when chumming with clam bellies.I fish with 15 lb. mono exclusively on spinning gear as this is what most clients prefer. I add weight if needed either a split shot or a rubber core sinker.
If I'm chunking pogies, I'll use a treble if I intend on keeping fish if not then same as above. As you can see, I try to keep it as simple as possible. Most of my fishing is after dark.

Striperjim , Thanks for posting this pic, My question is on the skipjack portion of the pic the stinger hook is attached to where on the front treble hook, Percy Priest in Nashville is my home lake I have missed some large fish due to short strikes we use 9+ inch gizzard Shad I feel a stinger will help. most shad have come back with the hide ripped off from the dorsal fin back.

I dont fish this way as i primarily surfcast but if I were to use that method I would experiment with the dual rig. Its adjustable and eliminates the treble possibly gut hooking.
Roccus has a tutorial on here on how to make a baloon rig with the sliding boa style hooks.

perhaps i will do one jim. the owner rig isn;t that strong. off the boat is one thing but from surf you may need a stronger setup as a whole mack would be fine but a whole bunker is an 8 and bait kinda deal. i would up the lb test to like 50# fluorocarbon. i think the heaviest is 40 they make and i don't know if it is fluoro or not.

Can you run this rig using a downrigger? Lake stripers are running at 20 to 25 feet right now. I've seen live bait run on planers but never on a downrigger. Any thoughts?
