    Big jigs and large shad lures have worked for me along with live bait, I'm not primarily a striper guy so I am sure others will have better info.

    here in tn for live bait we use fresh live shad or skip jacks and drift them down with the current but my self i use a off shore bait caster on a 7 1/2 med heavy rod with 50 pd power pro line and i cast a 6 inch pearl white swim bait on a 1 oz lead head. and at the dams when i go there in the summer for them i use a salt water 6 inch to water popper and cast into the fast current popping it like crazy when they come up-to top on jumps early in the morning and late eve. my colors i use on the top water are red head on whit and black head on chrome. it's very easy to tell when they are hitting on top water they will be hitting the top of the water chasing shad thats when you want top water lures.

    Depending on the size of the pit and how long ago it was stocked i would be surprised if any were left to pursue

    Stripers need a very unique combination of things to happen for the to be able to spawn in landlocked conditions and most of the landlocked striper populations are maintained in some way by stocking even if there is sporadic spawning taking place from time to time
