Went fishing for the first time of the year today. Yesterday I met with Mr. Bobo himself and purchased a thumper as I have been wanting one for a while now. This morning I had some family stuff to do in Whitney and figured I would wake up early and hit the lake first. Mind you I have only dead sticked a handful of times and have never fished Whitney in the winter. I launched at McCown and just went off some advice I read here on the forum and found a flat near the channel. I marked some baitfish in about 40ft of water and turned on the thumper. Got my dummy poles set out and let the boat drift. I looked over at the sonar and saw the fish starting to stack. Within about 2-3 minutes of the thumper being on I was surrounded by fish. I immediately starting catching white bass and caught a limit within an hour. I then started experimenting with different depths and started catching striper down a little deeper once I had drifted into about 55ft of water. I then caught my personal best striper right off the bottom. Of course I didn’t have a scale or a measuring tape. But I estimated the striper to be about 30” and close to 15lbs as this fish was FAAAAT. I can’t recommend the Thumper enough, if you fish in the winter I think the thumper is a must. Great first trip of the year and a great way to start off 2018!

Awesome first trip of a new year! Thanks for the report and for recommending my Thumpers. I’m happy it worked well for you.
Congrats on the pb also. Always good news to hear when someone accomplishes a higher goal.
