Wow the fishing was great yesterday! We were on a well known lake in the Twin Cities and hammered the white bass. We were fishing mid depth range using modified mepps spinners, tiny rattle traps, and tiny jointed shad raps. I couldn't believe the size of these guys myself. All fish were larger than a pound with some of the biggest in the 3 to 4 pound range. This particular lake isn't known for its tremendous white bass fishing. All fish were released to insure positive growth with these schools of fish in the lake.

The main lake was pretty cold but the bays are starting to really warm up quick! It was a very exciting day on the water. I heard the crappie bite was OK and the sunfish were starting to move into the shallows. Although the bull sunnies were still holding in the deeper waters. Thats all for now. I will be doing some smallmouth an largemouth fishing down in Wabasha on the river this weekend. I will give my report when I get back.

You do now CK that those are not stripers that they are white bass. The one in the panfish family. There aren't any stripers in the twin cities. At least not to my knowledge.

The state record white bass is 4.2 lbs and the one in my right hand was 3.14 lbs. We also lost ones that honestly looked even bigger. It was amazing!

The world record white bass is 6.13 lbs.

They have the build of a crappie and the markings of the striper. They really blast on a lure.
