Start in the very backs of the coves/creek fingers and work out. They're usually still scattered this time of year and even suspended at times. It was July last year before they got bunched up in craddock consistently.
Like John said they are scattered right now, I have found some schooled up in past week or so but they where very small ones. We have been catching bigger perch in the evenings throwing Small crankbaits to the bank. Caught around 50 last week one evening, all good eating size fish.
this weekend's episode of Pro Team Journal (Outdoor Channel) had a great segment by Timmy Horton on how to recognize species on your electronix. one of the species he hi-lited was white bass. the image/signature is distinct. worth a look.
Heading down end of this week to father in laws place next to state park. Given the time of year looking to get on a pattern for some perch for the kids as opposed to just stumbling onto them. Pretty basic electronics but any mid summer advice on target depths or more importantly what to throw and techniques would be appreciated. Read about some of the basics here and it was helpful...really helpful! But was down last week and found it hard to get it dialed in. Last week we settled for pounding on some green sunfish on the rip rap and rip some carp lips from the dock. Kids were happy I suppose. Thinking worms on a dropshot...if I am way off...wouldn;t be the first time. Talked about trying to get after some flatties too on the blackwater up near bull run or on the blackwater.

Good Stuff! Love AND hate the sabikis. My son grabbed a rod with one shad fishing last spring in richmond when I wasn't paying attention and caught me x4. Small hooks hurt the same. Boat carpet will hate me but I will load some in the bag and give it a shot. Thanks! Think I will start in back of our cove adjacent to the state park and work out. If no joy then I'll hop around and read the screen as best I can. Usually I only find trees.
Thanks for the tips. Got into em tho they were spotty. State park was a bit busy so we hit other side and found some schools on homemade sabikis. Set up off some rip rap so it was green sunfish on one side..,perch on the other.
