    No, you can google flat-fish or kwikfish to see one. They have a wide slow paced wobble to them. Salmon and steelhead love them, but stripers donít for some reason. Stripers like a very tight fast paced vibration. Opposite ends of the spectrum. No idea why itís the case but itís definitely true. In fall salmon guys troll thousands of hours with flatfish and kwikfish and catch maybe a handful of stripers. Spend the same number of hours pulling up yozuris or rattle-traps and you catch hundreds of stripers.

    Kind of counter intuitive when you see stripers hit slow side-to-side action top water plugs, but itís a thing.

    Stripers caught on flat fish sound like troll post. Only tight wobble lures; ie: rattle trap or yozuri

    Striped bass just reposition themselves given the structure based on tide. For ex, Slack tide if youíre on top of them they would be more opt to coming up to hit top water and water clarity is at its best. Iíve limited our striper on swimbait on low tide in 15-20 mins before. Main issue is if youíre actually marking striped bass on your FF.

    Hopefully next time out yields more results.

    Re: Striper & Tides

    i am mostly a bait fiserman for stripers. in the delta i like a moving tide . it can be tough for me on the out going because of the west wind. blows my boat arround and sometimes back up stream if tide is slow. so with incoming the wind helps my boat stay straight. when i fish up towards sac the early morning till about 11 is the best but i catch fish all day long sometimes

    I have been fishing way up the SJ river. I only got 1 fish today, had a decent 5lber or so that got off while i was steering the boat in the current and fighting the fish. Water temperatures are warming up with this heat wave, bite wasnt as good today as it was yesterday. Visibility was over 2 feet, so improving.
