Who told you White Bass aren't eatable?

White Bass is a member of the temperate bass family which includes White Bass, Yellow Bass, Stripped, & hybrid wiper.

The White Bass and Striper are very popular and good eating. More so down south there up here in the Midwest due to the popularity of Walleye & Crappie.

White bass are ok for eating. Especially the smaller ones. I usually keep a few of the smaller ones to throw into fish fry with the 'eyes.

I'd never had them before a few weeks back. All that hit the first day we were on Big Stone were white bass, so we kept a few to try. Not bad. Good enough we caught a few more the second day and had another meal. Brought the walleyes home to have with the wives.

They are about the worst thing i would eat, cut out the red part and they are edible- In the past i have kept them when times were tough and things were hard, now i usually give the walleyes away-which were hitting great this weekend-got over 15 in my boat sat. and sun. grin.gif

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.
