white bass

Recommended Posts

i was at the cannon river yesterday and my dad caught a little white bass. now i want one. what would be a good bait to use? it seemed like our cawlers were to big beauce i got alot of little taps but no real bites. i'm thinking a small mister-twister, does that sound good?

any help would be great

You can't go wrong with a 1/16 or 1/8 (white) rooster tail. Other things that will work are small rapalas and mister twisters.

Try the techniques above along the rocks on the east bank of the Mississippi, just below the Hastings dam. I bet you will catch more than one........

Fish infront of the king mill dam in april and you'll catch as many little white bass as you want. Everyone down there bobber fishes and they don't catch anything. You have to cast mepps spinners or twister tails.

Little Mepps and Roostertails are about the best. When you get into a school of white bass you want to get back to it as quickly as possible; artificials are best even small crankbaits, because you don't have to pause to rebait. The schools move around quite a bit, and there is nothing lazy about them when they are on a feed.
