    Anyone ever tried using Golden Shiners as fresh bait in saltwater? I have free easy access to 6"+ shiners. Just wondering if they can be an alternative to traditional bait.

They had a little propeller on them and took two small A batteries. Vin at the counter started raving about them, and sure enough I took the bait. It cost about $12...

It has a small second piece of tube on the end with 2 pretty large hooks. I only tried it (with no luck) with a worm on the end hook - should I put worms on both...

    I've never fished lures or plugs off shore for stripers, but want to get into it some this year. Looked at some yesterday but were from 5 to 20 bucks each, which I could lose in one cast.
