Should make for a good thread. I was reading over the article by field and stream titled "The 25 best striper lures of all time" and came across quite a few I've never tried or even seen for sale. I know many are for coastal fishing, but thought some would be fairly usefull on big Tex.

My favorites are:
1) Super Zara Spok
2) Pencil Popper - Cotton Cordell



I'm considering adding a few from the article such as:
Creek Chub Pikie
Cotton Cordell Red Fin
Yo-Zuri Mag Darter
Jetty Caster
Gibbs Casting Swimmer
Northbar BottleDarter
Super Strike LittleNeck Popper
RM Smith Swimmer

Anyone know of anyone selling these local? I bought some 1 oz kastmaster's with bucktail from bass pro shop. Most of my topwater fishing is off the shore and I figured the kastmaster should stay off the bottom rocks better than the bucktail and roadrunner jigs I use when they aren't hitting floating plugs. Most are like $20 lures so I'd like to hear from the experts before I buy.

The dog family from Mirror lure is hard to beat ( papa dog, top dog etc.) Also don't over look a plain ole bass type buzz bait.  Usually replace the skirt with a 4 or five inch tube. Works really well.  A really good one will bend the buzz bait wire some, but usually just bend it back and go.  If its calm( twice a year in Okla) a weightless swimming fluke is pretty exciting stuff.

I'd be interested to hear about any effective striper lure that is somewhat outside the box of lures traditionally used. Thanks for posting.

That's a great idea. I have quite a few buzz bait's, but skirts always get hung up in the buzz so I kind of wrote them off. Never thought to change out with tube or maybe even a fluke.

Back when I was on Tex all the time my father used 900 series RedFins with the center hook removed, he ground most of the bill off which turns it into a top water that goes very erratic, they worked great, just cast and reel as you cant control what they do, best lure for us ever then and they still work now just as good. Crome/Black or Rainbow Trout were the colors, Preston's could not keep them in stock.
Also I still use a Cordell Blue Striper, they are great, get them on Ebay, blue/white on black/white, if you look you can find them cheap but lots of collectors like them too.

The large Rebel popper probably is and was about the best top water I used, very hard to find and now pricey.

Hah! I inherited 2 Cordell Blue Striper's. Was curious if it ever caught fish. I knew it was for Texoma cause that is all my wife's grandfather would talk about, RIP.

The Blue Striper lures are great catchers, they do not go deep unless you reel very slow, you can use a fast reel and make them a top water, also notice the size of the hardware and hooks, some stout stuff there. I still have 2-3 of them.

Atomizer in baby blue and white.  Awesome lure!!!  These are used in the NE for surf fishing and I've caught some of my biggest stripers in Texoma on them.
