Bitblitz, my opinion based on what I’ve caught is that the current is quite weak this year with no gates open so the fish are moving upstream in the bottom of the channel instead of the sides that would have more of a “seam”. Only got some random small but fat fish. Observed the same from others. All my fish came on 3-way fly rig (purple or purple/red are best) but minnows probably work as well. The 3-way works way better in the deep water. Plenty of sheephead though so... If you head up by dam remember refuge dates changed last year till end of May. Motor around and look for schools on your side scan. I toss 1/8 oz. jig with twister tail or a 3” paddletail (more shallow so easy work with jig) contrasting head to body color. Might have to vary the depth on retrieve to get them. Count the bait down in sec. 2,4,6. If you get near bottom you can run into A LOT of sheep. Can be fun and make your arm sore reeling in big ones. I don’t believe they are there yet in numbers as it is a month early but with warmer water you just have to explore because the run will be ahead of the normal time frame. If or when you find them it will be fun as heck.
Well are the white bass by voyager yet or no. I have never went for them before and thought of going out Friday and trying. Any tips/areas to look would be great. Thanks
If there is 2 or 3 people in the boat not that hard.
Whitebass post is fake news. It takes more than a minute to cast and reel in a fish. They are moving in but not all the way to the dam yet. And not in great numbers. Catching them near the mouth.
If anyone snags a Jason Mitchell 6'2" pro walleye rod with a daiwa regal reel I would like it back. Netting a buddies fish and something pulled my rod right out of the boat thinking a big cat or sheephead thanks in advance
My hands are 11 inches long and 6 1/2 inches wide...the ladies like it, but it makes my fish look small :-)
It is easy to determine the length of the fish regardless of how far away they hold it from their body. Your hand is 4” wide.
Slimy, I caught four white bass near Title Town Brewery on Wednesday.
any whitebass up there yet,great fighters
