Hi Y'all,
How do you guys specifically target Stripers and Hybrids? I have been on 5 trips with my family to Lake Buchanan these few weeks and constantly caught 30-60 keeper White Bass every trip. However, we only caught 4 hybrids/Stripers in total over the span of 5 trips, with only one 19' Striper being a keeper.

We were using our thumper. We fished in 55-70 foot of water every time. The lures we were using were slabs/Deadsticking(jighead+4 inch fluke)/Flutter Spoons/Rooster Tails.

Any advises? Is my choices of location not good enough or do I simply need even bigger lures? I appreciate all information, Thanks!

Move locations... If you are only catching a few stripershybrids and mostly whites with that big of a bait, odds are they arent there.

Thanks for the tip. But the thing is I've been to dozens of spots with the same results. Perhaps Striper are in shallower water or even deeper water than the whites?

Assuming that striper and hybrids are in the same school that you are fishing, place your baits higher than the fish rather than right in front of their face.

Definitely go with bigger lures and baits. Minimum 5” swimbaits and big spoons. If you are fishing normal size rooster tails, you are fishing for white bass.
