How deep does the water need to be for thumping to be effective for whites? Thanks

I don't imagine there's a minimum. You just want to attract them closer to your boat and within casting distance.
Generally, I suppose you would be in 10' or more of water. cool

Good Fishing!

I usually want to be deeper than 20’ to as deep as 80’. I have thumped in schools of striper at 80’ deep...

Our R and R department at Bobo’s Thumper’s has come to the conclusion that normally a minimum of 8 ft up to about 16 ft stripers hybrids and sandbass will form a perimeter around your boat allowing anglers to cast their presentations and 16 ft to 160 ft deep they will come under your boat to allow vertical presentations. Your own conclusion could vary under different circumstances.

Do y’all think thumping brings the smaller fish closest to the boat leaving the bigger fish on the perimeter?

Not necessarily. The thump mimics the sound stripers hybrids and sandbass make when they are feeding. Other fish “hear” the sound and come to see what’s available for them to eat. All sizes will respond the same. There are probably more smaller fish than larger ones normally since we catch more as they are growing gradually diminishing that size class. My 2cents

I agree, I think thumping brings fish any nearby fish around however what I have seen on the Panoptix is that the fish stay at the same depth, they travel in the same line vs moving up or down so if the bigger marks are deeper fish deeper...

Where are you fishing stripers at 160 feet??

Probably an Eastern lake like Ouachita has them that deep, and big ones to boot.

Beaver lake Arkansas is where we tested my thumpers in deeper cold water. Called them up out of the trees at 140 ft.
Some clients in North Carolina and South Carolina have experienced the same results on their deeper lake’s there. Those guys thump more from April to October vs our common belief it only works in the winter months. They have always thought thumping would scare the fish in what they call shallow water. 15 to 35 ft. Is where their stripers are in the winter months.

Actually, that's a great point. This time of the year, I find on Livescope that thumping brings in the smaller ones very quickly; and they hang around creating a frenzy. On a good day, the bigger ones come join the party. On a bad day, you catch small ones all day (rich man's problem smile.
