Haha BigTex! Yea, I'm staying in bed Saturday, 30 MPH winds with gusts of 40! I've got a flats boat! No gracias, I am waiting until Sun/MOnday. Okay I will start dam and work those steep rocky ledges, points, and docks. Gonna rig up some square bills, maybe some Carolina rigged bifflebugs or craws. When you say jerkbaits, do you mean the hard jerkbaits with a lip like a crank, or do you mean soft plastic jerk baits? Honestly I will probably try both. Love fishing the plug type hard jerk baits, and I think the smaller soft plastic jerkbaits Carolina might be good?
If you had to choose.... would you chase the birds for striper early and then smallmouth fish or smallmouth fish early and try for striper later? I know I should just stick to one..... ugh... decisions.
