  1. Upper Hudson River Striper Club
    Fished mainly circle hooks the past 2 years. Had a decent hookup ratio but wondering if J hooks might have gotten the misses. Also, I know with the circles you are just supposed to reel into them rather than set the hook but how long do u let them run with it before doing so?

    The other day I was at a gentlemens house purchasing a rod and reel for stripers. Being green to the sport I was asking him tons of questions about the sport. The rod I purchased was 1-4oz for plugging. I told him I would like to do some bait fishing also. He told me it would be fine as long...

    I was just wondering what everyone thinks is the best type of braid out on the market to use for striper fishing. All of the different types all claim to be the BEST type but imo one has got to be better than the others. Any personal preferences? if so what # test? Thanks

    I have been surf fishing now for 2 years with bait. I want to start casting with plugs. The pole I'm using is an Okuma EVX 10 foot surf pole.

    I commonly troll with anywhere from 120 to 150' of line out and was wondering what kind of line to use. Is is as simple as personal preference or do you recommend a mono with stretch in it, or a braid with no stretch. At 150' thats a lot of stretch and is it okay? I understand drag settings have...
