White bass?

9 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone in the area's heard of any good white bass bites? Haven't had a chance to get any in a few years and need to scratch my itch! wink.gif

The Cannon River and all the lakes it goes through, Fox Lake in Rice County, and Pool 4 of the Mississippi are where I have had success catching white bass.

I have had some recent white bass action on Madison lake. I have never eaten these before, how do they taste?

I don't regularly keep white bass, but in a pinch for a meal I have. They're great eating, when you fillet the skin off you'll notice a reddish layer, just fillet that off & cut the out the colored lateral line & you're good to go!

Good Luck! L2f

They use Whipers for Sushi. How do you spell "shashemi"? confused.gif

I've been catching White Bass near the landing on Tetonka all summer while trolling crankbaits. The bigger ones have come from the small sunken island northeast of the landing. Great fish. They hit like a freight train!

As said earler. Just pick a lake along the Cannon River.

Maybe some knows for sure, but it is my understanding that

we should not eat any fresh water fish--raw, uncooked, sushi style.

If someone knows for sure; please post.

Definitely, never eat raw freshwater fish! Stripers are a fresh/salt water fish. Thanks for all the replies guys, i'm not sure when I'll be out but I'll let ya know!

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
