Re: Catching Strippers While Cruising

I agree that trouser trout are good bait and the banana hammock rig works well but I have had lots of luck with just about anything that sparkles and is shiny.

You need a shiny lure to attract their attention from a distance. I have used an x-pole with great success. But getting them to the pole is only half the battle and that's you bring out the cash to reel them in.

Admittedly, I have not tried this when cruising, but it is very successful in my apartment and I cannot see why it would not work when cruising if you boat can be mounted with an x-pole.

They usually catch you first.

Re: Catching Strippers While Cruising

I've never tried to catch a stripper before. Arn't they like goldfish? If you used a boober to suspend your bait would the stripper be more attracted to it? It's probably difficult to get one to hit due to the amount of baits being presented.

Re: Catching Strippers While Cruising

I went into Lowes a couple days ago and asked the lady salesperson what aisle the strippers were in. She said right there in aisle 5. I walked over there but all I saw were a bunch of cans and jugs of harsh chemicals. Maybe I was in the wrong store.

Re: Catching Strippers While Cruising

This could be a record response for a new member's first post. I'll have to remember that line when I join a forum.

I would guess most strippers would appreciate a reciprocal talent on your part, maybe being able to lick your eyebrows?

If you can do that, then you don't need cash.

Re: Catching Strippers While Cruising

It sounds like you are bottom fishing if you're catching flounder. Try trolling behind the boat or behind the dingy. The two universal lures for me were a 3-4" silver spoon and a yellow/greeen rubber squid. I have no idea where you are located though.

Re: Catching Strippers While Cruising

I got two strippers in my cabin now.
Soon as they are done the painters will come in...

Re: Catching Strippers While Cruising

To take the thread back to where it started: Stripers are a northern fish, slow trolling surgical eels works for us. As you go further south the fishing changes. I usually drag a yellow feather or some shiney spoon with a ruber snubber on a yo yo reel with about 80# test. Use gloves to haul it in. Good dolphin fishing from the bahamas all the way up in the gulf stream come spring. As for the other types that you do not want to mar with a gaff or net, I simply sit on a bar stool and lick my eyebrows!!

Re: Catching Strippers While Cruising

Somewhere I was.... probably Florida.... there was a gal who made a lot of money washing boats in a skimpy bikini. She was higher cost than the rest but did a good job, kept super busy and.... well... Sitting with a Rum and Coke... the view was amazing! (for you women, think: Pool Boy!)
