Whitebass can be caught below the lock and dams or in places that bait is congregated near wing dams or sand shelves. The whitebass use the wing dams or sand shelves to trap the baitfish and feed heavily. The best way to find whitebass is to look for fish or schools of bait breaking the surface. Also, look for concentrations of seagulls hovering over the water. Topwater baits work great in these situations.
Largemouth and smallmouth are also biting and are relating to current edges along cut banks with diverse cover mixed in like trees or clumps of vegetation. Topwater has been best in these situations as well. My wife I and fished the Goose Island area over Memorial Weekend and had a blast.
