What is the proper way to troll for stripers using wire line, specifically, best lures or rigs, speed of boat, marking of wire, amount of wire to deploy, and setting of the reel. Thanks in advance.

That's like asking what's the best brand of beer or do you prefer blondes or brunettes. I'm no expert at this, but I have about ten years' experience, and can say that the right lures and techniques vary a good deal according to circumstances. Ask around among the sharpies at your marina or tackle shop to get some notion. Bass generally like a slow troll and will bite on bucktails, parachutes, bunker spoons, deep diver plugs and umbrella rigs, among others. I'm sure if this thread keeps going, you'll get a wealth of information from folks far more experienced than me. Another way to learn a great deal in a short while is to take a trip on a good charter boat in your area and learn from them. Good luck.
