The big bite that usually happens in april /may happened in march this year.
The stripers are already on more of a summer pattern. If you see shad the stripers are there.
Also the crowd that fishes for record size Goo are already there and catching.
Bass are already being caught on jigworms and the night bite has gotten good.

Gasper Goo
People are actually targeting record size Gasper Goo out there now? When I was 10 years old (18 years ago) my dad and I went to the Lighthouse Canal looking for striped bass hoping to find one big enough to win the tournament I was in, but we ended up catching a Goo that tied the state record of 20.5 lbs. That was the state record at the time, but I'm sure it is no longer the record.

We used to fish False River every weekend and had never heard of anyone trying to catch Goo before that. Fun to catch but tough to eat.

Goo
6 of the top 10 biggest freshwater drum (goo)
have come from false river. Four of those were caught in 2005. The record at this time is 25.08 lbs

Used to catch them by trolling Rat-L-Traps around the Lighthouse Canal or wherever we found a bunch of shad. Freelining live shad worked well too.

Well I have been 3 times and have not had any luck. Any advised I would appreciate. I have not seen the fish schooling on top like I normally do this time of year. When you guys are trolling how deep and what type of baits yall using? Thanks for the help. Trying to get my dad on some strippers.
