Does anyone have a suggestion for a guide on PK to chase schooling sandies/stripers? We have gone out with guides and trolled and slabbed before but I like catching schooling bass. Any suggestions? TIA.

The window for catching schooling stripers is small and shrinking right now from what I have experienced. As for the sand bass, I couldn't say, I haven't looked for them lately, and have not seen any schooling on top either.

You might get Randy Wood to go with you very early and do that for stripers. He talks about waking redfins allot.

As for sand bass, in Neely Slough they are triggering very early on the surface on very small fry. I don't fish for them but if I did I'd be looking for some very small trout flies that look like 1/8 inch long fry. I watched some guys from my balcony casting over and over into schooling sandbass that would not touch what they were offering. Those sandies get a one track mind when they are slaughtering fry.

If you will wait a few weeks you can catch all the sandies you want with a green light just about anywhere down lake. I've done this in the past with little kids that come up to stay with us. I just drop a green light off the back of my boat at the cliffs courtesy dock at dusk and go eat. I come back after supper, dip up a bunch of ghost minnows from the huge circle of bait going around the light and let those little kids have fun. Amazing how fast those sand bass can ID an injured (hooked) ghost minnow in a sea of them.
