Striper Setup

Recommended Posts

Sorry guys I do not know if I should be posting this in this section, but I am going Striper fishing in a few weeks, Ive been twice before but with a guide, were going without one to beaverlake this time to try out the new boat.  My question is what would you guys suggest to use?  What action rod? gear ratio reel? #test.

Thanks,

Okie

If you are going after stripers of any size, then it's hard to beat an Ugly Stick Tiger Lite.  You can buy more expensive, you can buy a cooler name brand, but you cannot get a better striper stick.   This is one type of fishing where Ugly Sticks really excel.   These rods do really well casting big-arse plugs and heavy treble hook baits.

Casting or spinning ?

Ugly stick is a good choice I see a lot of guys using a 15-30 standard ugly stick for larger fish, I'm buying one myself for a larger spinning reel.

I use a shimano sojourn 10-25 lb and it has great back bone too, cheap 29.95.

You don't need sensitivity, you''re gonna get slammed.

You can't beat the Zillion swimbait stick paired with a Zillion reel.  Light enough to cast all day and enough backbone to control a chunky fish.

It depends on how you fish. If you're going for the top water bite I would recommend a 7ft m or mh rod with a 6.2:1  reel. If you're live bait, umbrella rigging or trolling I would go with a big round reel with a heavy rod. Good luck.

My rig is a G. Loomis MBR844C/ Shimano CTE200GT/ Yo-Zuri Hybrid #15.

The majority of the striper we catch below the Pickwick Dam are 8-12 lbs.

However, we occasionally find a 20+ and this year, several 30+. My rig

is not too heavy, but not too light for any fresh water fish and light saltwater

fishing.

If possible I think I'm going to get a H action falcon, probably bucoo so I can use it as a flipp and pitching rod to.  The only reason I'm doing this is because I can get them really cheap. for the reel, would you go with a lower gear ratio, for flipping and pitching/striper? what other applications are H action rods geared towards?
