Recently an article was written claiming that the all time lure for stripe bass is the curly tailed grub. What do you guys think?????????:confused: :confused: :confused:

All-time most productive striper artificial lure.......without a doubt, bucktails, bucktails, and bucktails!

Sounds more like a largemouth bass lure to me.:confused:

I have to agree with others, that if you are looking for the amount of use and amount of fish caught a white bucktail would probably take the cake.:D

Bucktail is one of the only methods that I have never caught a Striped Bass. Guess I'll have to try harder. How do you guys work the bucktail? Steady retrieve raising the rod tip every few seconds? Do you tip the bucktail with anything?

Even though its not my favorite way to fish, what you read is pretty much correct, of course the curly tail will be on a bucktail. Either a piece of pork or a curly tail on a bucktail is all you really need. I just like plugs more, I know I will catch less than if I exclusively fish bucktails, but I don't care.

The first Striper I ever caught on a lure was on a bucktail with a white curly tail grub.

I as well really like fooling them with a plug. The strike I feel is much harder on a plug then a bucktail.

Very , Very SloWWW retrieve along the bottom-every couple seconds as your reeling slowwwwwly in - slight pop-pop-pop-up and down - basically this poping up and down is getting the slack(bend) out of your line - usually will get a strike right after you stop the popping and going back to the slowwwww retrive along the bottom. In the Spring try it with a a long thin piece of fresh mackeral (sort of like a long thin piece of squid as you would use for fluke----only thinner). In the fall - pork rinds are great also! BUT - I caught my 1st 2 stripers off the ole Miss Cape May with Capt.Don back in dec.of 1994 - just deadsticking a plain,undressed red and white 2 oz.bucktail - as the boat bounced thru the rips!! :cool:

Bucktails and a curly tail grub or pork rind sounds about right to me.
