Favorite lures for stripers schooling at Canyon:
H2O Xpress(Academy brand) Floating jerk bait 4.5 inches chrome color:
The above lure is also a great trolling and casting lure on Canyon, has caught largemouth, whites, large CATFISH, gar, and smallmouth bass. and it is cheap, with decent hooks already installed (and is heavy enough to really cast a long way when chasing schools around with the trolling motor). Other colors did not work as well at all.
These next 2, you need to upgrade the hooks to striper strength:
Rebel Jumpin Minnow 3.5 inch (silver/black)--Upgrade those hooks!:
Rapala X-Rap Shallow Fishing 2.5 inches (Silver) -- Upgrade those hooks! (The heavier hooks also add a little weight to this lure for increased casting distance)
Also, have had luck with silver spoons dragged at surface fast to the point that they "skim" across the surface like a small boat.
