White bass will be in their active spawning run up till almost Memorial day. Then they'll change into summer patterns - moving in deep water or surface feeding when it suits them - mainly yearling fiddys will be active over July and August. Sometimes they'll be schooling behind dam's all summer long...

Had a blast yesterday on the Minnesota. Started off looking for back water areas. I found some but they weren't producing. So I started fishing current seems. Bam! fist fish of the day a nice chucky white bass. I caught and released 6 whites in about 15 minutes and it shut off. So I kept working likly looking areas as I made my way down river. Picked up some more white bass, one of which was 16-17 inches. During the heat of the day I tried for cats, buffalo, and sheep head using a snelled crawler. On the first cast my plan was to cast out put the rod in the holder and call my wife. Well I didn't even get the phone out and the rod tip was doing the dance. Set the hook into what was my largest channel cat of the year 27" and 10 pounds including the landing net. After that I couldn't keep the sheepies off my line until I was out of crawlers. As I headed back to the landing I was able to hit a few spots that I passed by on the up and was only able to catch one more white bass and one sheephead. Thanks Chris Hanson for your help and advice. I have a blast. grin.gif

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.
