If you want to cast a little further consider using a heavier plug. You can used the Danny which weighs 2 1/4 OZ, or the SRO Prime Minnow which weighs 1 3/4 OZ, or the Rebel Wind Cheater which weighs 2 OZ. All three of these lures are well crafted striped bass fishing lures.
Currently the lake is rising. Reports are that the striped bass bite is very good right now for anglers fishing from the bank while tossing white flukes. Anglers trolling for striped bass are fishing with lures or rolling shad.
