How to catch 'emHow to catch striped bass on Lake Buchanan in the Highland Lakes area of Central Texas
Productive lures for white bass include twister tail jigs, small hair jigs, small crankbaits, and small topwaters. Live bait fishing with minnows is also productive. For stripers, live shad fished with a carolina rig type set up on the bottom on humps and along dropoffs is almost always productive. Topwater fishing is good in late spring and again in the fall. Anglers should concentrate on main-lake points and humps.

When birds are sighted working schools of shad, this usually indicates stripers or white bass chasing bait just below the surface. During the heat of the summer anglers may have to use downriggers to effectively target striped bass. White or yellow bucktail jigs and trailers work well behind downriggers. Electronics can help locate main-lake structure for this type of fishing. Anglers should set their downrigging balls just above the thermocline depth, usually 20-30 feet.
