There are huge fish caught every year late in April.  The attention shifts to the north. But less pressure can help a bite too in De Pere.  

The main run is over and fish are  out in the bay proper. Especially near the dam night fishing late so giants can be caught still. So was the case this past week in cold front conditions.

The recent tournaments had fish. With many launches closed to the North, the lower bay has a bunch of post spawn fish in it  now. Launches are open in the lower bay. 

I have been doing best on Plastics and small crank baits lately.  This last week between the cold temps, snow and wind the bite did drop off.

I fish De Pere a lot even the days that tournaments are going on with everyone  doing well. One can usually try several presentations and do well on the Fox. Guiding is closed with Corona. I am fishing solo these days until the governor clears it.

Good luck everyone

Same here. I was fishing for a late run walleyes on the first and second week of May to be exact the 4th & 9th.  Had a blast catching tons of white bass with a bonus walleye, smallmouth bass and of course goats and carp. Fish the current seams by the dam and is game on. No need for trolling IMO.

SHIP, 

i've fished in the river late spawn or when the spawn is over and caught quite a few walleyes that decide not to leave. And sheaphead,  hundreds of them. They will attack any crankbait you throw and destroy every lure you have.  Never found whitebass like they do in the wolf.

There’s a lot of talk about white bass, but no recent reports on the Walleye spawn. I thought with all the cool weather the walleyes would hang around a few more days. Are walleyes still being caught up by the dam? Thinking of coming up tonight, so any comments would be appreciated. The Walleye in the photo is 29” and bit a 6” straight white plastic worm rigged on a 1/8 oz orange jig head

Thank you

Anybody know how trolling flicker shads work for finding schools of white bass?

Was thinking of trying this method this spring.

My go to lure are blade baits (cicadas, zip lures, etc.) if there are active white bass around they will hit these with abandon. The blades are an excellent search tool you can cover a lot of water to find them. If you know or think fish are around but they are not hitting blades, any minnow colored plastic dragged or hopped along the bottom will catch them. I find white is the best color for plastics. 

The best thing about white bass fishing is you can grab any lure in your tackle box “hey I’ve never caught a fish on that” and also long as it’s a half ounce or less, does a reasonable impersonation of a minnow and moves through The water column where they are feeding it will get bit. 

Having said all this they are not the most challenging fish to catch or my favorite but there in an undeniable appeal to nonstop action on whatever you want to catch fish on.

Hello All:

Regarding the White Bass on the Fox River, what are good lures/baits and colors to use?  What are some good spots to try?  

I enjoy catching White Bass so I would appreciate any input.

Thank you!

Last year we were catching white bass pretty good on April 28 and it only got better through the month of May. Yesterday my friend friend was watching the Head to Head tournament and he told me they were picking up whites around the 172 bridge.

Still to cold for white bass. A good rule of thumb is to start looking at the week before Memorial Day for those bad boys to show up on the Fox. If it warms up quicker, you can move that timeline up a bit.
