Default My Lures - Advice needed

Hey everyone, so these are the lures I have on hand, which one would you think would give me the best chance in landing a striper? Mind you that I'll be surfcasting the entire time.

Thanks,
~Ed

Where are you fishing?

If you're in the river try herring as well.....regardless chuck em all and see if you have any action.

That looks like my first set of plugs. I had my best luck with the yellow red ear and the pencil popper during daylight and the black mambo at night.

Personally I think that using live/chunk bait is cheating when it comes to fishing. Be able to use artificial seems to be more of a challenge then just "waiting" for something to bite. Also with my current living situation, I don't have the place, nor equipment to harbor chunk/live bait.

I had some decent fish last year on that black mambo as well. It's definitely a night time lure.

Pencil popper during the sunrise can be nice

Well....on the river up here you don't need anything more than a sabiki to get live bait...

I hate trolling (BORING) and my shoulder is shot from drilling holes ice fishing and i am trying to get it healthy for baseball season so tossing lures isn't gonna happen

Took me many years to really get to the point where i can bang the stripers pretty good with live bait.....to be consistently succesful isn't easy...............and it is way more than sitting and waiting......i am constantly busy changing bait etc.....a morning of striper fishing is far from relaxing!

And........i am out to catch fish so if live bait works better then that is what i am using

I was thinking about the same subject and wondered about a crippled herring (4-5 oz)?

I have good luck with them in the CC canal and with my heavy surf rod can get way out into the current. When the tide is running in the canal you cast about 35o upstream/tide and let it flutter to the bottom, then bounce it off the bottom by pumping and reeling in as the current sweeps it past you. You get most hits on the drop.

Anybody work these in the Hudson.

P.S. yes I know chunk or live herring works best............

I agree man, throw 'em all and see what happens. I've had great success using light colored pencil popper/needle fish during the day, as well as white/red laughing bucktails. Chuck that Deadly Dick out there too during the day as well, should produce, especially early in the season. Definitely wanna use the black mambo and the grey/black Sluggo at dusk/night fishing. This early in the season throwing artificials that mimmic bait fish is gonna get ya on some fish fo' sure. Good luck out there man.

I've tried some bucktails and bomber swimmers with no hits yet. It's been so disappointing that i bring a dozen blood worms with me just to catch something. Well I'm not giving up with lures in the Hudson but seems like I'm gonna save them for the beaches and ocean fronts.
