popular striper lures for long island sound

Try posting this question in the CT and/or NY regional forum(s) and you may get more/better answers. There is a plethora of bait in the Sound right now (including: sand eels, silversides, bunker, herring & worm hatches to name a few). Imitating any of these species at the right time & place can produce bass. Don't rule out live or fresh dead bait either (i.e. bunker & eels). To get you started though, 9-inch black SlugGos catch many a striper in LIS. Good luck.

A certain lure, no. The bass in the sound may be feeding right now on spearing, sand eels, adult bunker, river herring, cinder worms, crabs, juvenile flounder......so the most effective lure at a particular place and time will depend largely on what the bass happen to be feeding on at that particular place and time. It is impossible to make a generalization and say that bass are hitting X lure right now because 2 bass a mile apart might be feeding on two completely different bait species in completely different conditions.

This is a real good post - I've had luck in a few spots with a bomber and wood eel imitation. 4 miles down the beach neither worked and only got hits on a spook or popper.

haha try a small half sized one, you know a short stack... and throw it full so when the blue chomps it, it explodes.......That would be pretty sick to see

don't know about coke cans for blues, but the bass seem to like Seagram's.
