My son and I just returned from a 4 day fish-a-thon on Lake Whitney!
We caught lots of striper from midlake to the southend on live shad. Most areas held lots of 3lb fish but we found a few areas holding 5-10lb fish that were a blast to catch!
Most productive areas were edges of the river channel with standing timber, under schooling white bass, or edges of humps/flats near creek channels. We fished 20-24 depths on the edges near creek channels and 30-38 depths near the river channel. We were dropping shad 20-27' down to them!
PS - 8" gizzard shad are not to big, lol
Still looking for my Texas 20lber...
