This edition...lets talk about SWIMMER PLUGS. They consist of many shapes and motions. All of course depicting the wounded baitfish. Some are jointed, or in two sections...this causes a different motion in the retrieve. Mambo Minnows, Red Fins, Rapalas etc.are swimmer plugs..
Some of the reasons why I find this to be perhaps the best all around artificial, is because you can fish it day or night....with a teaser or without..... preferably slow but can be retrieved any speed you wish. The traditional side to side wobble of a swimmer is hard for most stripers to resist.
Be sure to have swimmers, note I said plural, size and color variance can matter alot, in your box. I cant say I have landed huge stripers on swimmers but I have landed many stripers in the shallow water area that these plugs were designed for.
