Can anyone point me to a really good spot for the white bass? I'm going to take my 8 kids out of school (they will be missing their mid-terms) and drive up from Waubeesha next week and don't want to waste our time. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
Just kidding. This is an actual post. I'm not a fair-weather fisherman who isn't willing to put in the time to get on the fish and just wants to show up when the gettin' is good.
Fishing Date: 10/8/14, 3:00 - sunset
Anyways, Terry and I bartledoo'd up from the Fox Cities against the Arctic gale and it wasn't much calmer on the water. We tried drifting, but the gurner slipped off the egg beater and we had to anchor down. Found the whities huddling up in 12 FOW (feet of water) in a current break at a turn in the river after a deeper 18 FOW (feet of water) hole in the main current. The wind swayed the boat back and forth even with two anchors out, but we were able to drop 1/4 oz. jiggers right in the gibblers' mouths. For a short period, they were smashing the fatheads before they reached bottom. Lucky Terry pulled in the three bonus eyes and the yellow bass.
Looking forward to more days like this and the imminent walleye run. Phil will be out there today working his favorite orange jigger tipped with a minnow. Say hi to him if you get a chance.
Good luck to all!
Post reports! Good and bad.
