Shad Lures

What topwater lures and cutbaits are best at castaic?

i would like to go this weekend to castaic lake, but i wanna now what type of lure and bait to bring for stripers, thanks

Me personally, I would wait just another month before going to Castaic... are you going to the main lake or the Castaic Afterbay (small lake below Castaic Lake Dam)?

Anyway, baits for stripers are live shad when they're around, which they should be now. Good dead baits are anchovies and sardines, either whole or chunks. When trout are around (usually after a CDFG stocking), trout-imitating swimbaits work great. Big ones work better for bigger stripers.

Big topwaters in rainbow trout colors work well. Black Dog Lunker Punker, Cotton Cordell Pencil Popper, Heddon Zara Spook and Magnum Wooden Spook, etc. If shad are up, pretty much any kind of topwater lure would be good; Rebel Pop-R, a Spook, etc.
