Only a guess here, but there will be about a week left of getting any significant numbers of white bass - provided you invest the time and effort to find them. This year has been definitely a year class of spawners on the main channel. Frequently, we all look for the spawners to be on the shorelines and up/down run fish to in/along the channel.
Late season parts of the run, as well as down run is 90% looking for them and 10% luck. Some guys will just go out and stumble upon a school and get lucky. But as the spawn winds down here over the next few days, fishing will get to be a bit of work. Covering water and looking at staging (resting) areas will increase your catch. At the end of the "run" each year I've had days that I have spent 5-7 hours of looking. But, when you do find a run or hole that is stacked, youy can still easily pluck 40 to 100 fish effortlessly. Just realize that when your chasing down run fish, that a hole filled today may very easily be empty tomorrow. That's where we transition from catching back to fishing.
Just a side note on this year. I want to thank all the clients I have had the pleasure of fishing with on the Wolf this spring. There has been some ups and downs with weather conditions this year and not everyday could produce fish by the hundreds. But as promised, I'ld work my butt off to get the most out of the day. This year, more than most, I had an exceptional number of guys looking to learn more about using their electronics and non-traditional presentations such as sonars (blade baits). There are some very good guys on the up-and-coming for knowing/understanding this system of water. I hope they continue to learn and share in their success with other. Reports from myself on the Wolf will be almost nil in the upcoming months. Due to interest by clients elsewhere, I've been transitioning over to other bodies of water. Winnebago, Poygan, Lake WI, and Fox Lake have all been producing well! Everyone have a safe and productive time out there!
And naturally, a THANK YOU to Mom. Always let me go fishing whenever I wanted...and encouraged me to study everything I did. She's 77 with many health issues...and can only get in the boat with me a couple times a year for a couple hours at a time. I thank the Good Lord that I get to share some great memories with her!!!!
