Iím taking my niece out for her first fishing trip on a boat. We are going to Whitney to target striper. I went a couple days ago and found some smaller fish by Mccowen. Is that a good area or are the better schools by the island? I appreciate any advice you can give me if not we will wing it. Should be a great day.


lets go fishin!!

How are you fishing? Live bait, jigs, slabs, trolling, etc? What techniques are you using? I was out the weekend before last and marked enough fish mid-lake that we never went further South. The fish were holding and active in 32-38 ft of water on flats. The mid morning and afternoon bite was on. Keep moving until you find fish.

Where do you mean 'east banks'?... Around the island?

We managed a few striper, no monsters biggest went about 4 lbs. Managed to get into some good sandbass though. All in all my niece had a good time on the boat had had already asked to go out again.

I would fish between the State Park boat ramp cove and McCown, close enough to the bank to throw near the flooded trees/vegetation. Big topwaters just after daylight; pencil-poppers, spooks, etc.
Swimbaits will work too.
That's what worked for us a week ago.

Also had some luck trolling late-afternoon between the State Park and Harbormaster.

I caught fish the other day trolling a crank bait along the rocks over between Cedar Creek and Katy Bridge in the evening right before sunset and dark but I would love to get her on some top water fish and then vertical jigging for them as well
