Stripers Are Chasing Shad Around The North Windsor Basin
by Arizona Game & Fish Department
At Lake Havasu, reports are that stripers have been chasing shad around the north Windsor basin in the early morning and late afternoon hours. Look for seagulls diving on the schools of shad coming to the surface. Other good locations this week are the Chalk Cliffs, Mesquite Bay 2, and the mouth of the river. Largemouth bass are hitting white- or chartreuse-colored spinnerbaits and shad-colored Rat-L-Traps on breezy days. Smallmouth anglers have been successful using deep-diving, shad-colored crankbaits around rocks in 8-15 feet of water or gravel/rock shorelines where the smallmouth are chasing baitfish.
