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

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
