Thanks to all that provided insight and advice as well as those that sent PM's on tips and offering a backseat.
The wife, son and i went to PK this morning. We went to South D&D to catch chad. I learned how to throw a cast net but only caught 5 shad. Just couldn't locate a good school. So we took off to Neelys slough with those.
My son managed a 20" striper and we had a couple of whites as well.
It was a great timeand I'm hooked on these fish.
Will be back on the water next weekend to give it another try.
Here is Logan with his striper.
