Went with a Striper charter on Cumberland last Thursday. Got our limit (and 8 keeper cats) but the fourth striper took a while to find.
Fished with planer boards at depths of between 30-48'. Fished with 1-1.5 oz egg sinkers that stopped at a swivel. Had a 5' leader (20lb flourocarbon mono) with a circle hook with alewifes as bait. Each hook had a little black plastic disc on it that apparently kept the bait from moving too far up the hook. Not sure what hook size we used. Rest of the line was 20lb monofilament. Trolled at very slow motor speeds. Lost lots of bait due to gar (half the bait would be missing).
Rained most of the morning but caught more in the rain (between 6AM and 8:30AM) than when it stopped.
