    The Striped Bass at my local lake are located in about 70 feet of water. Is this too deep to jig a spoon? I was thinking of jigging Kastmasters and Krocodiles weighing anywhere from .5 to 1 ounce. Any thoughts? Should I try another method?

    It's not too deep for a spoon. You will need a lot of flash because light does not penetrate well to that depth- and also a lot of motion.
    Look for spoons with a lot of flash and a lot of flutter.

      Down line live bait for stripers at that depth.

        I would go with a one oz to get down and keep the drift under better control, I would also recommend a buck tail for a back up. Also, at longer depths I'd go with a braided line, which will eliminate the stretch you get from mono, you'll feel even the lightest strike and have an instant set of the hook.
