We catch them in shad colored rattle traps and square bills, Ned and wacky rigs in watermelon colors but some were using white and strawberry last week. I caught an 8.2 fishing with minnows at the entrance to a creek in about 5 feet of water last weekend while fishing for crappie which I still haven’t found. We catch some massive stripers up in the trees too. My son caught a 4 and 6 pound largemouth and then next morning a 10lb striper in the same area. Also, VERY important to use the channel buoys and stay close to them. If you have a map, follow closely. We were just idling and bumped up against a branch of a huge tree in 30ft of water with no hazard markings. Luckily, we were only at idle speed but it’ll wake you up quickly. I’m sure there’s other ones out there which are much more ominous.
