Catch some small white perch( 4"-6") and "live line" them. I use size 7/0 or 8/0 Gamakatsu Octopus or other non-offset circle hook. Tie directly to line(no weight). Use lite tackle & worms with a size 8 hook to catch small white perch before stating to striper fish. They keep alive well in a flow-thru type bait bucket. I set 2 rods off back of anchored boat with with open face baitcasters(Calcutta CT400 & a Penn 965) with click on. When they hit let run freely 30' or more & then start reeling to set hook(don't pull).You see a lot of guys using this method. Also, sassy shads & other swim baits etc work but live lining seems to be the best consistent producer. Cut bait(herring, bunker etc.) also works if you can get away from the catfish.
