I'm new to the Hudson. I heard lures are not effective for striped bass - stick with worms, or herring. Is this because the water is so murky, and the stripers have to smell the bait, or is this just misinformation?
Also, what about plastic, scented worms? Thank You!

Not sure if this is 100% accurate but I beleive that during the spring spawning the large females are not all that interested in eating and almost turn-off so to speak. When they do eat, they stick with the local food sources which heredity has taught them are available.
