I'm considering a trip up this Sunday to scout areas for topwater stripers. Splits area.
All recommendations welcomed!!

Wasabi,
That, a couple of rattletraps, some bucktails and some time.

Find the Shad in the shallows early in the morning?

Hope so, my net is small and built for shallow throws.

thx,
nw

Sure, flail away with all those pretty lures! I'm sure you'll catch something. I'd let a couple shad do the work for me, maybe drink a cup of coffee or a beer depending on the time of day.

How/where to catch good live bait has been a secret few will part with for Lake Anna. I've caught shad upriver in the backs of large shallow coves, preferably with mud bottoms. I don't go often enough to tell you an exact location or I would. You won't regret getting a larger net.

Post some pics! Not enough Lake Anna traffic on this board.

Back, empty handed.
Got in the middle of a few early, but they weren't eaten, what I was throwin.
Soon as the sun got past 9er clock, they were not to be found.
Didn't even mark any.
I do have to get up and out earlier next time.

I know where they were early, I just need to be earlier!!
