This is a great, little cold weather read. Field and Stream‘s guest columnist Jimmy Fee (editor of On the Water magazine) rated his top 25 striper plugs of all time. Lots of classics and tried-and-true plugs to feast your eyes upon. I know lots of us go the bait & wait route, but I personally prefer to use plugs and it’s a big challenge for me to learn when and how to use what and where. It’s all part of the learning process of getting to know your spot and reading the water, factoring in variables like moon and wind direction and other intangibles. Some of my personal favorites out of Fee’s list: the Andrus Jetty Caster, the Bomber Long-A, the Yo-Zuri Mag Darter (Thomas got me on that one), and the sinking Super Strike Little Neck Poppper. What are yours?
