Rapala Rippin Rap 2" blue chrome is my go to. Anything flashy or chrome 3" or smaller will typically work. If that are near the surface, a small square bill crank in any shad pattern will produce.



If I fished for money.........I'd be broke.

In a world of compromise.....Some don't.

3" grub on a 1/4 oz. Jig head is my favorite. Sometimes use a baby clear torpedo but the treble hooks are a pain when they are really boiling.

Is there on one else that takes off the treble hooks and installs barbless treble hooks in their place? The fish just fall off in the boat and the barbless hooks don't tear up the inside of the mouth and throat if they take it deep. I get my hooks on Ebay.

As mentioned they will hit anything in the water when feeding on top. If fishing with kids the Little George will cast far, 1 treble to deal with rather than multiples, and it gets under deeper where the larger fish typically are waiting for the fallout.

Mepps #2 silver blade white tail


call it what you will...he is not definitely not anywhere near the top of the list for QB's that I would choose needing a FG or touchdown drive late in the game.

I do this too. All my ratl-traps, crankbaits, topwaters, kastmasters, lil' Georges, etc have barbless hooks now.
It's a hassle replacing the hooks on 100+ baits, but well worth it. So much easier getting them unhooked when the action is fast, plus there are tons of 10-12" stripers on Whitney and the barbless ones don't tear up their mouth.

I purchase slabs with barbless hooks from RSR ., Actually will force you to keep constant pressure on lure, thus making for a longer fight. Save a finger ,save a fish. Fishing with barbless hooks is a species saver.

i thing to keep in mind when fishing schooling sandbass on top is that usually the larger sandbass are under the smaller sandbass reaping the rewards as the shad filters down. A bonus hybrids may be down there also

If catching a lot of small one i will put on a 4' sassy shad on 1 ounce jig head with single hook
