The smaller shad are in the lake now and white bass are on them. So, I have had to switch from a #4 to a #2 Mepps. A #4 may get an occasional bite, but a #2 will get a fish every cast if you are on fish. When using a #2 I put a 3/16 oz mash-on weight about 16 inches up the line to add enough weight to cast and to get it to sink faster. I've been catching double limits this way in 2 to 3 hours over the past 10 days. Look for continuous, so;id reflections just off the bottom in 14 to 18 fow around the edges of humps, points or drop-offs. I found then at Saint Annes Point East, Swing-set Hump, Flagpole Point, Key Ranch Drop=off, Merimac Point and the south edge of Spillway Hump.
