We hit buch from the bank, carolina rigging for cats with shad--- ended up with 65 white bass, 5 cats, 2 hybrids and a striper!!
Not a lot of cats but the bite was nonstop! Live shad, dead shad, cut shad-- you'd throw out and count to 3, if that, and bam!
Should have tried some other bait and try to get cats but we were busy with 1 pole, didn't have time to set up the others!
