Had an unbelievable trip this morning! Caught and released about 4 limits of hybrids solo in under an hour plus a few white bass and a catfish. Many times I had four fish on all four of my lines! This short video captures the action along with provides a hybrid fishing quick tip on why I was successful this morning.

Cool video! Really cool to get on a school like that and have 4 on at a time!

It was a blast! It was constant action for about an hour then the school either died down or lost interest. About that time the wind picked up and made it difficult to stay stationary so I called it a day just maybe 30 minutes later. Do you fish with live shad? I wasn't a believer in it because of the work of locating a decent school and catching them but it is the golden ticket, at least in this cooler water period.

You hit on a couple of good points. Hybrids and especially stripers are nomadic fish, meaning they don't stay in any one spot. They have tails and swim. So if you caught them a day or two earlier doesn't nessecarly mean they will be there next time. So scan the area like you said in the "S" pattern , shallow to deep. That being said there are certain points, humps, ridges...depending upon time of the year for each, that you can time, almost with certainty the hours, the school of fish will come into feed that particular spot or come through. You may have to camp out for hours of boredom but eventually the action will turn on. Also most people while scanning the graph look for a big spaghetti screen... That's great and all but if your scanning and see a couple of good arches stop and set up. Many times these are bigger fish or the first feeders to the table and the rest of the school will follow. Get those fish to go and the rest will come in.

And as far as catching shad, with this time of yr being the exception.... For yellow tails the earlier you get up the better.. I mean like 3-4 in the morning earlier on the water. For gizzards the later in the day or late in the evening.. back of creeks. Hotter the better

This time of year, fish catching is all about ambush spots. On the water time is key in order to locate and follow that pattern ! Good video, keep them coming !

Shad are the easiest to catch right now. The herons are lined up on just about every bank and you just have to practically throw the net on the bank. Time of day be damned.

Yep!!! Easiest time to catch bait is right now. Little tip when you see that school coming down the bank throw and hit that first wave. Those are going to be your bigger female shad laying eggs. The shad following are going to be mostly your male shad coming in fertilizing the eggs.

That’s why I only fish two rods when I’m by myself
