-While fishing for Striped Bass in the Sacramento River, cast the Jointed Clown lure out as far as you can. Just let it sit at the top of the water. You do not have to do anything, and eventually a Striper will come along and nail it.
-While fishing for Striped Bass, use the floater lure (shining recommended). This works very well because the fish come from the bottom and snatch it.
