Yes they do...just need to remove the mud line and soak'em in milk over night. I personally have not tried em.

Mudline is funky taste! Better without it! Many fishes are like that.

Dare I ask where you've been getting so many white bass? I've been fishing all my life and never run across one. It'd be great to find some thru the ice. Not many lakes in MN have them and they are tough to find the rivers.

White Bass can be very tasteful. Best in the Spring or Fall. They taste kinda muddy like everyone says in the Summer but if you quickly cool and throw them on ice when caught they stay pretty fresh and good.

The mudline is simply the bloodline which can make it taste smelly or muddy thats why some people choose to remove it. I've heard that if you drain the blood or clean the fish immediately which gets rid of the blood the muddy taste will be gone.

White Bass is found mostly in Rivers or Lakes that have streams or river running into them. Otherwise they are not a fish to be stocked in local lakes due to their aggressive feeding behavior. The St. Croix & Mississippi are a good place to find them.

      It is my understanding that Pepin ice went out with the assist of the Coast Guard ice breaker.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.
