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...

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
