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!

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
