Hi all, I took a few days off to go play on the Mississippi for a few personal days. Regardless of the Miss or the Wolf, the whitebass respond exactly the same way to significant water temp drops. This also ties in with the huge surge of PMs and emails I'm getting. I can't possibly respond to them individually, so I apologize to anyone that feels offended that I didn't respond. Just had to put this up for everyone at once.

We are in the early up-run of whites. It is very common to find isolated schools (especially in colder water 40's to very low 50's) in deep holes. Good electronics like Humminbird with switchfire that allows you to clear a lot of turbulence from the screen and identify fish. I personally will run Down Imaging side-by-side with my 2D 'sonar and compare what I see to identify fish.

As we endure this April Vortex of cold, think more like icefishing. Very slow vertical presentations that keep a bait in front of their nose. Obviously some will hit with aggression, but most will be a very light "POP" on the line. Small minnows for live bait, W-5 jig raps, 3/8oz blade baits, small Kastmaster spoons, and small flies on 3-ways all do very well.

Sunday on the miss, water was 57 degrees and whites were on the upper wingdams. We hammered them. By Tues the water was 48.3degrees and the went deep into 24+ foot holes. Positioning the boat so we could fish vertical with 3/8 oz blades very slow produced outstandingly. I've used this technique year after year for whitebass on the Wolf and it never fails me.

If you have good electronics, this is the time to have faith and confidence in what youy see. Until the water gets back up to 56ish or higher, slow and vertical is the name of the game. Run/gun the holes until you locate them and keep your presentation slow and in front of their nose.

Favorite COLD water colors of my custom blades

Hey guys/gals, I've targeted walleyes, white bass and smallies on the river, but never catfish. I've caught a few thru the years, but not more than a couple in any one day. What are some techniques for getting them to hit in the holes? Rigs? Thanks

Mike

Channel cats and you can fish just about anywhere and catch catfish here and big ones! edge of holes and drops. nite time is best. whitebass are coming up strong now its end of the month. saw big schools in NL. search is on! and water temps will be on the rise if the weather man is correct. water temp 48 and almost hit 60 back some days ago. crazy mother.

I was wondering if anyone knows the river temperature and if catfish are running yet? I'm looking to get out soon if they're biting. If anyone can help with spots, that would be great too. Thanks.
