I'm taking some kids out this weekend that would love some fast whitebass action. I've caught them at the kinni narrows before but I am wondering if there are better spots? Thanks for the help and good luck this weekend!

They are biting up and down the river right now. There has been a decent bite around the Taylors falls area of the park, some action by the Osceola landing and also down by Marine on the St. Croix. Small cranks, spinners and spoons are working. 3'-10' range over a sand bottom with some type of current break nearby has produced the best. You can also slow troll for them and usually where you pick up one there is more. Hope this helps.

I used to catch whitebass really easy cranks and spinners, but somehow I'm not hooking into any big ones over 16 inches. What happened to the good old days when I could've at least caught some 18 to 20 inchers with a rare 22" once in a while.

Fish any of the backwaters on the Minnesota river and you will catch occassional 18 inchers or more....

The Minnesota has been more consistent in size of schooling fish...when you hit bigger ones they are 15-18 inches. When you hit small ones in mid-summer they are 8-12 inches. My luck on the Minnesotat has been the small ones mostly.

Was out in in the stretch of Taylors Fall area to Obrien state park back waters. The White Bass were thick and hittin hard. Consistent large ones in the 14-18inch. It has been like that the last couple of weeks. The run will be over soon with warm water temps on the rise probably by the end of the week.

Well, me and my bro were out last monday in the Hudson area and we caught a bunch of white bass over 18" while cranking for some eyes. Not a bad fight, but i wished they were eyes! We only got 2 eyes that day, but caught 7 whites, 5 at or over 18, 2 that were around 15"

18" White Bass is a darn huge White!

We must have caught 100-150 whites on 3 different trips on the Minnesota this spring and only caught 1 that went 18 inches. Probably another dozen that were 17".

So if you guys are getting them bigger than 18", show me where please!!!! Pretty please!!!! smile.gif

The white bass by Taylors falls are quite larger. I've caught a few 20" whities up there. Trick is to use bigger bait. I had a 1/2 once white rooster tail.
