During these months, these open-water predators pursue the vast schools of open-water baitfi sh, especially gizzard shad, and when they push one of those baitfi sh schools to the surface, there is a feeding frenzy! That is most likely to happen early and late in the day, but sometimes that activity can last longer. Even if it does not, it offers at least a couple hours of fast action each day."
