I am having a great hookup ratio in striper slurps with the Ima Skimmer (3/8 ounce. 4.5 inch) surface lure. Slurping stripers can be quite picky when it comes to which lures they will hit. I like the chartreuse shad color or ghost blueback which both work well. Make sure to get the smaller size for slurps and save the Ima Skimmer Grande for boils later on.
