I've had days when skunked by both, but in my book the trout is more elusive of the two.
My thoughts exactly. I've baitfished trout for 15 years and caught a lot of fish, but it got too easy. I would only fish at the lake when I couldn't get out to a trout stream. Stripers go nuts after rooster tails, I caught my biggest striper on a white and silver rooster tail.
