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...

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
