Been out twice this week. Fished down at Hennepin. Caught at least a dozen sauger/walleye each time out. 6-8 legal fish. Jig minnow or jig plastic were equal. Anyone catching white bass?

Fished today from 9 to 1 up by the dam and around the island.  Got about as dozen white bass from by the dam and another dozen around the channel side of the island.  Water level has dropped about a foot since Monday, and is still pretty clear with yesterday's rain.  We used pink and white, and chartreuse jigs tipped with shiners and fat heads, and gold blade baits.  The white bass are in the system and spread out for the taking.  Great day.

Great day on the Illinois today.  Got out around noon and started up by the dam.  Used 3/16oz pink and white jigs tipped with shiners.  Caught the end of a nice white bass bite.  Moved around and didn't find much.  Couple small sauger, drum, carp, skip jack.  All kinds of action to keep us occupied.  Ended up back up by the dam in the evening and got a few more whiteys.  Ended up keeping 14 good sized ones, threw back probably the same number of small ones.  Late catches were on spinners.

Good fishing all!
