Caught 1st white bass this fall in lake Oahe/Missouri river near Ft. Yates, ND. Near sundown, cloudy, night crawler,#4,slip bobber & splitshot. 14" fish as good a fighter as bigger channel cat. Can't wait till catch more, & walleyes get here.

use hesitation, pause every few cranks. Trust me, it works!!

in a lot of lakes, if you have a boat you can just look out over the water and usually see schools of them splashing together. and if you dont pull up too close, you can throw just about anything in there and get instant bites over and over. watch for the birds on the water, they go down eating shad, and thats usually what the sand bass go after too. so theyre together a lot of the time. spoons and shiny stuff works the best.

On lake erie the best way to catch them is to use a float with white flies tied on about 1 foot apart, if you want to catch more fish at once tie on more flies

i have had the best luck fishing a live minnow or small twister tail in the slack water below a dam. some days you can fill up a 5 gallon bucket in no time.

tight lines to everyone

Here on the Tennessee river, the white bass crave small, live crawfish between february and april. However, the fish are seldom interested in artificial crawfish. You can use a rake to drag crawfish from ditches and mudholes. Here, anyone can catch a limit of good fish in just a couple of hours.

When you clean your fish, be sure to filet off the wide strip of red meat that is closest to the skin unless you prefer the stronger, fishy taste.

I really like fishing for white bass in early march (East Fork San Jacinto)off lake Houston, Tx.with sassy shad, when spawning to catch the 3-4 pounders

White bass are a fairly popular target in Sanford Lake in Sanford Lake,Midland County,Michigan.

You want action, well get ready! Today me and my friend caught 80 silver bass in until 3 hours. We used mepps spinners and 1/4 oz jigs with plastic minnows that had curly tails. They were caught in the Detroit River at the mouth of Lake St. Clair on the Canadian side. Good Lord they smash the bait! Very Fun!

I have used minnow bait with spinner and caught many (1lb-2lb) in saylorvil lake (DesMoines,IA) Ali

erin | Posted: September 24, 2005

white bass often are caught medium brush. All of mine have been caught there. they where 3 and 4 pounds

colton reames | Posted: July 14, 2004

If you can find a strong current, drop a bass minnow with a bobber 1 to 2 feet deep and allow to float down stream.

Now if you want real sporting action, whip out the Ultralite with 4lb test, 1/32oz jig with a 2" twister tail grub. Cast that little jewel into the frenzy and watch that line twitch!

I like to use a buzzbait during the summer and a soft-plastic baitfish imatator any other time for trophy white bass. It's gotten me white bass one and two pounds.
