What should I do when I find a big school of whites in summer? I've come across several big, active schools of whites in 25' to 30' while trolling. I set the spot lock and anchor above them and drop spoons, cast rooster tails, but only catch 1 or 2. I can catch a couple trolling through the school on every pass, but not casting.

What should I be throwing?

These schools aren't moving. We can catch a couple each troll through them, and circle around and do it again and again.

No, the ones we were casting to were schoolies. We caught all of our overs thumping in 30-40 foot on shad. The graph videos I took were when we were thumping. You can hear it in the videos.

Watch Dennis Christian’s video. Works very well for me on Joe Pool and Bardwell. I use a tail spinner also, using his same technique. Hope this helps.

Hell pet works good this time of year, as Sandjohnny pointed out they are moving fast.
