|i used #1 lots of time gotten good results but from live bait.
#2 is good also but for squid or perhap sardine.
striper likes thin line like 8-10 pound and live bait
using #1 for striper, i have yet to see a striper caught on the bottom or near the sand, allive seen is them caught from boats
Freelining is best when a striper is around, sort of like abonita or yellowtail, just a plain hook with bait a live one.
well thats my opinion, im sure others have more idea's.
When In Doubt, Go FISHING!
