I haven't really tried to fish for them too but I did run in to a school one day. I threw out one of those 5 to 6 in. topwater chugs and ended up with a fairlygood sizejack. I would say use something big and makes a lot of commotion.Thats about all the info I know on how to catch them. Someone will probably come in and give more info.Good Luck!

i've had really good luck just dropping a big chunk of cut bait (steel leader, small weight) below the school and let it sit there for a few minutes. feeding or not, you usually get one that just can't resist the free meal.
