Anyone else having trouble finding striper? Catching a lot of small ones on live shad in the main lake but none over 18. Have they started to move up river? any help on Whitney would be appreciated.

Haven't made it out in a few weeks but with this cold weather setting in next week the stripers will start forming large schools along the main river channel. The birds should be back on the lake and help finding the fish. We can usually locate large schools around the island and big Rocky Creek to near the dam area. I wouldn't worry about using shad this time of year, get some 5" flukes and slabs will work great

Thanks 44. Yea we looked pretty much everywhere that was south of the Katy Bridge last weeekend and couldn't find any quality fish. So we anchored up for catfish and caught a 26 inch striper on a 3ft point in the middle of the day. It had a huge head with little meat so they could still be trying to come out of their summer pattern.

finally was able to get out today. The deadstick bite is on. The stripers today were fat and full of eggs. Caught some magnum sandies on slabs. All fish caught near the main river channel above Katy bridge. The fishing should only get better as the water temps drop

There were nice size stripers in the main lake yesterday. Found some between Towash Creek and the island. They're there, but getting them to bite can be an issue. Live perch worked for a while. Couldn't get them to take slabs or jigs.

Same with Bporte. Good screen shots in deep water, big balls of bait very few takers.

Went out this morning from 8:30 to 1:00. Found the striper Northeast of Bird Island. Caught 4 legal striper and tons of little ones. Most of the striper wanted nothing to do with artificial bait. Tried slabs and dead sticking even had my thumper going. They wanted slabs that were moving so we had to troll. Don’t have a shad tank on my boat so didn’t try shad.

Found some big white bass north of Katy bridge and caught a limit.

Had another great trip today. Had a 2 man limit of stripers by 8 am dead sticking white 5" flukes. Caught almost twenty stripers in in about an hour and a half then went looking for sand bass. Caught a whole bunch of small sandies with a few large keepers on slabs and flies above. The stripers and sand bass are grouped on the edges of the main river channel and deep holes near the river channel.

Great Screenshots! What unit are you using? Trying to make a decision on one to buy.
Thanks

today was a little tough but BOBO's Thumper helped . Found em but they were not hungry. The bite was very very light even by dead sticking standards. I am looking for suspended stripers 18-30' (these fish are usually actively feeding) in 40-50 fow around the main river channel. If I don't see fish above 30' I move on and continue to looking. When I find them suspended (like in the screen shots below) I will use the trolling motor to go back and forth across the channel till the graph goes blank then turn around and go the other direction.

Nice screen shots for sure 44. I noticed that your output voltage is pretty consistent. Are the shots with the big motor on? Do you run your unit (s) off your cranking battery?

Most of those were taken while on the trolling motor. Yes both graphs are wired to my cranking battery. When I fish by myself like yesterday I will put my console unit on standby

You sure found a mess of fish.
Hope you continue to find them like this.

You guys might pull some horse head jigs with curly tails real slow with the trolling motor. In years past this worked when deadsticking did not. When we have warm streaks like this they want a little more action.
Strolling I believe is the term most folks would use.
Whitney is close to my deer lease so after my trips at PK this weekend I may run over to Whitney.

another good trip this morning. Just about every fish is ovr 18". The schools are getting bigger. We found a large group of fish willing to cooperate that was about a 1/4 mile long. We got off the school and instead of looking for fish we headed to the house to watch football. Most of the stripers dropped below 30' and that's when they get difficult for me to catch on artificials. All fish caught dead sticking. The stripers are kinda mixed in with some magnum sandies. Starting to see some skinny long stripers in with the fat and healthy ones

I was out there on 12/7/19 as well. I can catch tons of small fish (stripers and whites) but nothing of any size. Huge schools on the graph. All deadsticking small and large flukes and slab spoons. I have been fishing 1/4 mile north and 1/4 mile south of the bridge.
Not sure what to change to get into larger fish. I will admit that I can't really pick out smaller fish vs. larger fish on my Helixs. I am in the black and grey alum Excel center console if you ever see me out there give me a holler.
