Just wondering if anyone in the area's heard of any good white bass bites? Haven't had a chance to get any in a few years and need to scratch my itch! wink.gif

The Cannon River and all the lakes it goes through, Fox Lake in Rice County, and Pool 4 of the Mississippi are where I have had success catching white bass.

I have had some recent white bass action on Madison lake. I have never eaten these before, how do they taste?

I don't regularly keep white bass, but in a pinch for a meal I have. They're great eating, when you fillet the skin off you'll notice a reddish layer, just fillet that off & cut the out the colored lateral line & you're good to go!

Good Luck! L2f

They use Whipers for Sushi. How do you spell "shashemi"? confused.gif

I've been catching White Bass near the landing on Tetonka all summer while trolling crankbaits. The bigger ones have come from the small sunken island northeast of the landing. Great fish. They hit like a freight train!

As said earler. Just pick a lake along the Cannon River.

Maybe some knows for sure, but it is my understanding that

we should not eat any fresh water fish--raw, uncooked, sushi style.

If someone knows for sure; please post.

Definitely, never eat raw freshwater fish! Stripers are a fresh/salt water fish. Thanks for all the replies guys, i'm not sure when I'll be out but I'll let ya know!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!
