Next Lure

So, when I fish western LIS, I am usually targeting rock piles and reefs for stripers. In the early morning I start out with poppers, if no hits what would be your next lure of choice. Water is 10-15 feet.

I'd go back at night and throw live eels... :) 

 

But Seriously, I would try a loaded Redfin or SP Minnow. A bucktail with pork would also be a good choice if casting distance is not a big concern.  If you have some current a darter would do the trick I bet (at night though).

 

Good luck!

Good advise:) I use the Doc for top water and a 9 inch subsurface Version of the Doc for a lure that swims 2-3 feet under the surface

Sluggos are a fantastic lure still, love dead sticking them with a slight twitch in current; or slight twitches in little to no current areas with hard structure.  I also love the single hook set-up on the sluggo, easier to release a fish and lower changes of a mishap to me.  From shore, I don't fish them with weighted heads that often though.  The OP was talking about water depths of 10-15 feet, so for me the sluggo would not be an option.  I'd feel better off w a live eel in those depths.  I want my offering down deep in the water column where the fish are.

Salt pro in bone! Or similar baits from  Yozuri that are jointed. I yak fish the western sound a lot, I try different patterns until I find what works.

I hate to say this ,but if you are fish finding and in a boat drag a tube and worm around the area and you find out if anything is home. Real SLOW. If you don't get a hit move somewhere else.LOL
