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

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
