Are these 4 inch swim bait Good for stripers or willI need bigger baits if I want to catch stripers next time i go to tawakoni also will catfish rods work well for this type of fishing since stripers can get as big as catfish can and fight as hard
as them as well

I caught striper/hybrids on this lure before. Let your drag work if you land a DD fish.

We catch lots of fish at PK using the Chartreuse version.

I am sure that they can catch fish. But you are better off fishing with some 5" sassy shads from RSR. I can swear by them. I was fishing the water inlet at Chambers next to 15 other boats and we were catching the Hybrids as fast as all the other boats combined. The boat that was next to us bumping up against us was casting those swim baits and not catching any. I gave him a couple of our RSR 5" sassy shads and first cast for each of them they caught hybrids.

The sassys are tough baits too. The have great action and I have never had one rip on me. It normally wears out at the hook, but never lose a tail. Super durable.

The up side is they are also cheaper then what you will pay for those swim baits. I have some extras if you want to give them a try.

Last time I was at Tawokoni, Used two of those followed by one of these at the end. If you think one Hybred pulls, get three on at once.

That 4" will work fine for Stripers on Twok. As previously mentioned the chartruse version may work better. Good luck, I miss that place.
