While I agree that the F-18s are the go-to in the Hudson, I still have two huge boxes full of smaller rapalas and yozuris and would never leave the dock without them.

My all time top producing lure in the Hudson is a F-13 hot steel, second would be a J-11 in Fire Tiger and/or clown. The problem wiht the smaller lures is that you need a stock of extra hooks because stripers rip break/bend them regularly and its not worth going with a bigger hook size and losing action.
