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 just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
