Planning on trying my luck with sandies/stripers Wednesday at Tawakoni and haven't caught either in over 30 years so I need help. Not using live bait either so I'm definitely at a disadvantage. One thing I have going for me is I have a good Lowrance graph with Navionics so if you get me within a couple of feet of a target I can probably find it, lol. Seriously, just a tip or two about location and lure and I'll take it from there. Planning on launching at the State Park. Thanks.

Hit the holiday humps and should find the hybrids and stripers. There's some whites mixed in the bunch but I did not find the whites concentrated in with them.

Hopefully somebody else will chime in and help on where to find the whites.

Hybrids, stripers, sandies I have no preference so thanks. I think I see the holiday humps on my graph. Navionics shows them well. Good thing about Navionics I can find spots on my graph right here in my garage before I leave and mark them. Thanks for the tip.

I love Navionics !!! Although I am extremely new to them I am slowly learning !!

The humps cover a large area but produce great fish !

I was out 2 weeks ago. Did better on the A-rig than the slab.

Was throwing a flash mob jr and the full size model.

Just curious, what area are the holiday humps located? I've never been there and was wanting to take my 11 yr old son out there sometime this summer .

Look up Holiday Marina the humps are directly across from the marina. You can clearly see them on a navionics map by locating Holiday Marina.

Shouldn't have any problem finding the "humps", just look for the boats.
