Quick limit on Whitney this past Sat morning (30 mins). Live bait on the ridge beside the river channel south of the bridge.

Looks like a solid, healthy limit of stripes to me.

I knew you were my friend. For stripers on Whitney i use live perch. Unless they are schooling, then I use a clear Zara Spook. I haven't had much luck getting them on swimbaits or jigs.

Until this year I was so stubborn and refused using shad because of the well known pain in the butt it can be to catch and care for them but man does it pay off! Especially in many situations where artificials just donít produce. Do you have a smart trolling motor to spot lock over fish or what do you do? I have a smart trolling motor and I wonít ever go back to not having one now especially for shad fishing.

I'd like to hit Whitney tomorrow morning. I've never been. Where did you find your bait?

They will catch a few, but you can tell they are not Shad. I fished some side by side yesterday and there was a noticible difference.

Perch will work but they are like #5 on the best bait list, numbers 1-4 are shad. I usually use perch because I'm 69 with two bad knees and and a hip that needs a second replacement. I would pay unreasonable prices for live shad on Lake Whitney.

Interesting to hear what works for different people. I have had better success on Whitney with perch. Iíve had great luck with shad, perch just seem to get hit harder than shad for me.
