Why not try a jig? Find a spot with a few fish marked, take a 5, 6, 7 or 10" FinS (they even make rainbow trout colors)
, put a 1/2 or 3/4 oz jig on it.
Drop it straight to the bottom. Jerk up on the rod, let it drift down.
I'd try the trout and white for starters. If those stripers are alive, they will hit it.
You should be able to get them at any B&T or WalMart
