Drift Fishing at Tawakoni is coming alive! Bait is the biggest key to catching these giant blues consistently! I have been very lucky to catch a couple gizzard Shad here and there. If there’s any advice on how and where to catch Gizzard Shad on Tawakoni please feel free to share it here! Caught these two fish in 18FOW. 2 separate trips but caught in about the same area. Fish are still spread out but feeding as temps cool down.

Dang! Nice catches- the pictures really do great conveying how much fun that was. Your smile tells me all anyone needs 2 know. Nice job, amigo

Can I ask how and what you rigged?
Edit: your post says what- but not what parts of the fish-never heard of this breed before)

I was using gizzard Shad. It was an 11” gizzard Shad. So I filleted it. Used the fillet on a Cooper Santee rig with a drifting weight and a cork close to the hook to keep the bait off the bottom. Drive up wind, throw out a drift sock, and watch the rods go down! It’s been good fishing over there lately!
