Shad Boy!

In the hot summer months the real bass are found at sunup and sundown--the white bass and the hybrid striped bass / wiper. For a few weeks last summer I witnessed schools of white bass feeding ferociously on schools of gizzard shad. This is a perfect scene to paddle into, the water's surface exploding with attacking schools of bass. An opportune time to throw one of your shad patterns into the slaughter. Hold on tight, this fish is going to dive deep and fast. Leave your 4wt in the car.

I'm beefing my patterns up with some white rabbit strips and plenty of buck tail and flash.
