Met Rob at Whitney again this morning and we unloaded, got on the water before the sun and went to our go to place that has been great the two previous trips. Of course, not today. No shad and all we marked was debree on the graph. The flats west of the island was barren. So we headed East where we had found some latter in the day the second trip. As the sun came up so did acres of sandbass and they were HUNGRY. Didn't count and didn't keep any but we were very busy for at least two solid hours. Many many doubles on slabs, a-rig, top water, but what worked best was a #4 mepps spinner. Birds were working and the sandies were surfacing all over. Mepps would catch them when they were up or down. These fish were aggressive and good sized. My neck hurts from spinning around so much looking at all the schools that were up. This finally played out but the fish were still in the area. We could just move the boat around and find them. Later in the day we spotted a boat load of shad being chased out of the water on a point and we moved over there. Huge school of baby LMB. Never seen this before. We had a blast take a look at the pics. The graph was lit up like a christmas tree and of course Rob was hauling them in two at a time.
