Short of getting out a shotgun and shooting them, how in the heck do I catch a striper at night under my halogen dock light.

It is so frustrating to see big stripers swimming in the light and not taking whatever I throw at them. I have used a bucktail with a worm, bucktail with a worm and squid, plugs, every Yo-Zuri lure in my box, large clams with a single hook laying on the bottom...etc.

What do I do to get one of these guys to bite?

5-6 inch piece of bloodline from a tuna fish on a fishfinder rig.

Absolutely positively will kill the "dock" stripers. I guarantee it! :D

Are you fishing from the same dock with the light? If you are, the bass can see you and will spook. Try casting at the light from a remote location like a boat, kayak, or adjacent dock. Work the edge of the light. bass are atracted to the bait around the lights not the lights themselves. I fish dock lights a lot and catch many fish but never have I caught the bass that I saw cruising the lights where I was standing.
