Minnesota river white bass

Recommended Posts

I have cousins from over seas coming to visit for the weekend. No fish is really open and lakes are still frozen but was thinking I can take them out for whitebass fishing. Anybody would like to share any spots that are hitting right now? What lures and techniques are working? I usualy fish the croix but it usualy does not hit until later april. Was on youtube of a guy gishing late march on the minnesota river and landing white bass

38 degree mud soup right now. Just because the video was late march doesn't matter. It's still not 'late march' water temps yet. Good luck. You might want to do something else with them. JMHO

This weekend?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the water is just too cold yet. The white bass bite will really crank up when the temp hits 60 and you find the school, but it is very hit and miss.

Do you have a boat? If you want some action, I would suggest Red Wing. You can probably find some walleyes and sauger over there and you can even keep a few.

Red Wing at Pool 4 or Alma pool 5.

Typically good walleye sauger bite and a jig and a minnow or plastic will get the job done.

I would have to guess that he meant rivers in Minnesota and not the Minnesota River?

If a guy was lucky and found some spots close to shore on pool 2 in St. Paul this weekend you might get multiple species action. Possibly a white bass or two.

Like others have said through, targeting the rivers in at least a couple more weeks would ideal. Just a cold and slow spring this year.

Plenty of ice for ice fishing most people have never ice fished and the panfish bite right now is hot bring a plank after this rain/snow storm.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
