    in the chesapeake bay around here, i know the most popular bait is live eels. bucktails are really gib jigs and spoons are used. but these stripers are the 30+ lb ones that live in the "big" waters. what kind of water are you seeing them in?

    Down in your neck of the woods for live bait I would go with a shad or a real large shiner on artifical A large currytail and large Jig or a storm king shad hope this helps:0a26:

    3-5 inch blue gill, perch, shad, and large crayfish work around here.

    In the Arkansaw river: large shad,bluegill,nightcrawlers,large shiners
    you have to switch back and forth to find what they are hitting

    I myself have even caught them on liver as long as it moves in the curent
