Gonna be heading down (like all of us) to either Romancoke or Sandy Point. It seems to me like the hot bait for stripers is clam snouts and bloodworms. I have a 12 ft om surf rod that can really throw big sinkers and bait way out to the channel edge but the clam snouts and blood worms don't seem like they would hold as well on the hook as alewive or mullet. Are the stripers not hitting cut bait? What do you all think?
