Default Re: Striper Talk -- Artificials?

I get pencils and needlefish mixed up. Probably because I have done so little of using either. I think many surfmen have their pets which carry them year in and year out. Also, love affairs. These days, because we can't sell fish and are limited to ONE striper, we fly fish in order to get the most out of our fishing in this reduced level.

Bucktail jigs, large ones like the smilin-Bill tied direct, no hardware junk. Direct. The large ones sink well to penetrate the water column the hook will handle a tuna. If you happen to prefer a pork-rind sweetener be conscious of occasional fold over the rind that can cushion the hook. I stopped pork-rind for that reason. You get a solid hit that holds for a few seconds than suddenly lets go, you will know there was a fold over. Fast water spots where it is tough to get deep, like the Canal or from a bridge the bucktail is often the ticket.
