Met Rob at Lofers bend and was greeted with high water (1/2 dock covered with water) and breezy North wind.
Decided to try South of the island first. Caught a few there then Rob noticed birds through the trees on the North side of the island. Went around to the North side of the island and there were a fair amount of birds working, no splashes but it was obvious that the fish were driving the shad up. Didn't take long to get over a big school of nothing but stripers and it was game on. Catch a few, move, catch more, etc. The graph was lit up like I have not seen in a long time (see pic). After this played out went North to point 9, point 8 and Cedron creek area. Nothing for us.
Went back to the island and caught many good sized sand bass, North and South. Fish were either suspended at 10-15 in 20-30 fow or hugging the bottom in 15-20 fow. The ones hugging the bottom were easier to catch with slabs. Almost every fish we caught was on a slab, small for the sandies and 1.5 to 2 oz for the Striper.
Nothing but striper
Rob caught many doubles (on slab with fly above)
