Would you be willing to help me as well? I too am pretty much a beginner to stripers. I have caught a few and their fight places them high on my extensive 5-10yr "bucket list". I've fished for stripers & hybrids only twice in my home state of Florida. I will be in the Barren Lake/Cumberland Lake & River area of Ky between 5/15 to 5/21/10 and would like fast action. It doesn’t matter whether they’re hybrids or pure stripers. Size is less important. Which do you recommend? I like using light spinning tackle( 10 & 20 lb braid). My boat is a modest 16' aluminum V bottom w/o a live well.
I generally prefer using lures. I would bring with me swim baits, jerk baits, jigs, Gulp eels, & spinnerbaits.
I'd greatly appreciate any advice, as to specifically where and how to maximize my chances. Any website info would also be appreciated. Thanks, Fishbrain. email- [email protected]
