A friend asked me besides spoons what you all have good luck on for sand bass. I do not intentionally target them so I was not a lot of help. Any lure suggestions for me for Sand Bass ? Thanks,

Jerk baits, lipless cranks, basically anything that mimics shad.

Humdinger! They look like little George's but in my opinion work way better. Get them in 1/2 oz white with the glow in the dark paint. [Linked Image]

Its best to cut all the hooks but one on anything you use.

top water cranks when schooling. You'll get hit every cast. Trouble with sand bass is the poop all over your boat,

Traps and cranks. Anything with some action and small enough for their mouth. You can throw bigger baits to targer the larger fish in the school. In my experience the smaller ones are on top and the larger fish feed under them.

Was using a Rat-L-Trap one time catching sand bass in some newly flooded brush on a main lake point. Caught a few sandbass, then on one cast the lure landed and I made a few turns of the reel handle and got a hit that was like a freight train and my line started heading out to deeper water. My friend saw the pole bent and asked me if I was hung up. Hell yeah I was hung...on a 7.25 lb largemouth bass!! My personal best.


Hotty Toddy!

Yes, and less chance of getting yourself hooked.
