Duke 59.. I think I fished the same hump that has a saddle right behind it. We caught one trolling and caught zero slabbing. Not sure if there is some tactic I'm not using. We caught some down by the flat off the island by the dam. Found them all in 21-25 feet of water. Kept 5 and let another 4 go. All caught on hellbenders with kids holding the poles. Could not slab a sandbass up for the life of me. Maybe my style of what I'm doing only works on the summer pattern. All fish caught where females and still had their eggs in them.
We went this eveing at 3-7 pm. 5 kids and me in the boat!
Any pointers on how to slab would be appreciated.
