Willy, what do you do with the drum and aren't they same thing we referred to as "Sheepshead". Used to get a lot of them Walleye and Smallmouth fishing the St. Croix River in MN. Never tried eating though I understood they were same family as saltwater drum and quite edible.

For all the Sand Bass I caught last year, I have not caught one this year.  Granted I haven't fished a whole lot lately but last May, Sand Bass out numbered my stripers (not counting little ones) by at least 2 to 1 margin.

We were catching some large sandies last year. If stripers are eating those, I want to catch one of them!

I once saw a 20lbs striper dead floater with a 5-8lbs striper sticking out of its mouth; must of chocked to death on it. If they can eat their own that size you can bet they will eat sand bass as well. It's only been 3 years post flood so it's possible the population of stripers have grown to a size that is just now getting big enough to consume sand bass in mass.

To many shad for the Stripers to concentrate on Sand Bass. That being said, I have not caught a Sand Bass yet.  Could have to do with water temp. staying cool longer than usual. Just a guess. We are giving them some time. Don't want Ax's pretty Sand Bass lures to go to waste.

Cleaned lots of stripers and have never seen sandbass or crappie in their stomachs! Have you all seen sandbass in stomachs of stripers?

I caught a hybrid in Tawakoni a couple of years ago that had a small yellow bass in its stomach.

Talked to a guy that should know about such things. His opinion is that we had an exceptional class of sandbass last year . they were close to the end of their life cycle . right at 4 years old . so I guess their was a big hatch that survived well some 5 years ago now .

I have a hard time remebering this morning much less 5 years ago

While I am thinking about it . went to the old time original prune pickers . the heavy ones . got me out of the drum and back on the stripers . huge stripers the kind that come right to the boat and shack their heads and wave bye bye with their tails .
I'm finding 24 ft of water near drop offs to be working best

If you're too busy to fish, you're too busy.
