I was wondering if anyone could tel me where the strippers or sand bass are best at this time of year.. not looking for anything specific or wanting to take your honey hole, just a part of the lake would be helpful.. our lake house is by the dam but a lot of people have been telling me to go to the other end of the lake.. anyways I’m looking to take my 6 year old daughter and 12 year old son out this afternoon so any help would be appreciated..

I'm in the same boat but it is my 8 and 11 year old Sunday through Tuesday. Want to get them on as many fish as I can. Any help?

Fish are shallow, as in less than 20 feet deep due to thermocline. Horizontal approach has worked the best. Swim baits and cranks, natural color or pearl.

Fished the south end today. Found a couple in 25 FOW in the treetops and a couple in mouth of sloughs along with a couple cats. All on shad. Crazy story that i almost dont believe myself. Reeling in a cat about 16 inches and when getting near top of water a big striper was right with it. I have seen striper follow other striper to the top but not follow a catfish!!! anyone else seen this?

That's wild. Thanks for the info. Hopefully we can have enough success that the tube can stay deflated.

Trying to keep the tube deflated.....
I totally identify with that!!! Life of a family man I guess.


It's only a good cast if you catch a fish...

Back in the 90's i would see school's of striper chase a hooked BB back to the dock and schools of BB chase a hooked striper.

Jackwagon: Glad to hear you saw a striper. I have not seen or caught one in months. All I am catching at night at green lights and lighted docks are huge perch and LM Bass. All caught on live shad.
