help for white bass

6 posts in this topic

I got the day off Wensday and want to try my luck at white bass. I want to fish around Shokapee or Belle Plain. Are there any accesses that I should try to avoid or use? Any tips would be welcome. Thanks, Eric

The white bass are still hitting good. I got out tonight for a few hours.

The water temp is now hovering at almost 60! I had 58-59 all night.

Fishing whiteys is pretty easy, find a creek, (hopefully big enough to get back into) and start casting. I was using a 4" Lindy Thumpin grub and they were smackin it hard. I started by jigging the deeper parts and then moving shallower and finally casting right to the bank. The fish tonight were right against the bank.

Yes whitebass is pretty easy on the Minnesota right now... However, I dont think it would be good to consume any...

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
