So I am relatively new to bass fishing in general and have done considerably well the last couple years, but there is a lot to learn and a hack like me is just kind of piecing it together as I can. After spending one of the slowest weeks I've had on powell I have a few different questions that maybe some of you more experienced anglers could help out with. 1. What is a typical trolling speed for stripers? Do you vary speed? Different speeds for different times of year? What is your go to speed when trolling for stripers? 2. Help me read this graph. Over the last week I saw tons of shad balls on the graph. But in some areas, I saw this. It looks to me like maybe shad that are being hammered by stripers? That would expain why they are broken up? The problem with this assumption for me is I don't see the typical bigger wavy lines I typically see with stripers. However, if this assumption is correct is it even worth it to drop spoons? Or are they too interested in the real goods? Or maybe it's the perfect time to drop spoons because they are super agressive? Honestly I drove right over these just thinking all we had were shad under us and then today as I was driving home I got thinking that it could be more. What are your thoughts? 3. Umbrella rigs? Who has used them? I saw some guys trolling with them this week and were killing it and we were trolling in the exact same area and only caught a few. I tried looking up if they were legal or not, but could not immediately find the info. If I remember right, they are legal only on Powell? I look forward to hearing the comments!
