I have found a lot of non-feeding fish lately, presumably stripers or hybrids. After giving up, I have been turning to the Whites. They have been easy pickings on Cordell Slabs in 30' of water. They are fun to catch and stock the freezer, but I'm ready to get back on some bigger fish.
^^^^ Me too! I spent all day, today, at PK marking fish. Thumped, splashed, went into stealth mode. All I caught was a bunch of small striper and small sand bass.
From Costello island north was stained, 60 degree water. South was clear and 57 to 58 degrees. Up Cedar Creek was clear to the state park.
I have found a trick to catching those hybrids right now that don't want to bite....its a lot of fun too. When all your normal tactics aren't working, I drop a 1/8 oz Christmas tree colored feather crappie jig with 10 lb test line on a spinning rod right in front of their nose and don't move it. They will hit it almost immediately...can't catch big ones as they will straighten your hook. This works like a charm for me on hybrids in Lewisville
I can catch the small ones on slabs and small jigheads with small flukes. I may have to drop down a few lbs. in line size and just use a skirted jig without the plastic.
