    Guys, those marks you're seeing deep that won't bite are likely mud shad. There are thousands of them all over the rivers. They can be large so the marks can be mistaken for stripers. There will be stripers mixed in. Try what I call the "winter stall" It'll help put some fish on the board. For those with my jigging book, I talk about two strategies for this time of year, see page 157 and 161. You've got to do everything just right to get them this time of year and those are the things that I've found work best.

    That makes a lot more sense than an entire school of striper not being hungry haha I had no idea mud shad could be that big. Thanks for the info. I've got the trolling book, but it sounds like there's a jigging book order that needs placing. I appreciate the help Alan!

    The schools of mud shad can be enormous. He's a label screen shot of my fish finder from last week or so.
