Styles of Fishing for Stripers

Capt. Fernandez uses various styles of fishing – depending on the time of year, weather conditions, temperatures, etc. Here are explanations of these styles:

  • Live Bait – the use of primarily live shad
  • Cut Bait – the use of chunks of cut-up dead shad
  • Downriggers – trolling jigs with trailing plastic tails
  • Jigging – bouncing jigging “spoons” off the bottom of the lake
