Fishing Stripers what to do?

Need info on the deadliest bait and rigging for stripers.
Im a trout salmon guy and this is another domain.
Ill be taking a couple of important execs..
Water is very turbid cold with strong currents.
Im thinking mackeral or tommy cod with a big hook. Dont know if I sink it or float it.
We will be shore fishing. thanks

BTW Theve been pulling out 32-39 inchers all last week...

Down here big flashy lures are good. Big balls of shrimp if you're fishing bait. I don't know about up north.

On the hudson river we would use eels from a boat. If fishing from a pier, bloodworms. Also chunks of bunker worked too. The biggest we caught were always with eels.

thanks for the advice.We finally settled on Tommycod and buck tails.
Everyone around us caught big except our party. Our largest was 18 inches. Everyone else around us caught 35-39 inchers. Big fish!!
One guy was tying pieces of liver around his lure...seemed to work good he got three.

Glad you got some action. And it's fun to see other people catch fish (for me). Love seeing those bigguns.

The bait used to catch strippers is expensive, but far simpler.

Rats!

Talk about a disappointing thread! My fault I guess for not noticing that "Strippers" had only one "p" in the title. Thought I'd like to go on this trip....
