In Reply to: Shad baits for Striper at Smith Lake posted by David on August 22, 2003 at 11:42:49:
I live on Smith and we use shad of all sizes. We seem to catch larger ones with larger shad(obviously lol) We also use a cast net to catch our bait on Smith itself whenever we can. I seem to have better luck catching them with a net around the Mauldin Camp area across from Blue Water Pointe. Also we seem to catch more stripe in the Ryan creek area which is across the main body from Mauldins. Mrs Mauldin has two boat ramps and it is safer than leaving your rig out in the parking lot at the dam. Mine was broken into over there twice. So much for the so called hidden security cameras and patrol they say they have there. There is alot of good striper fishing below the dam as well. It is all bank fishing unless you put in at Sipsey and come upriver. You can call 1800lakes11 to get the generation schedules.
