Default White Bass

I was fishing today to see if any bluegills were shallow yet. I caught this white bass full of eggs, using a #10 Olive Bead Head Wooly Bugger on a 5 weight rod.

I used to catch white bass on my boat on lake erie while spin fishing for walleye. I just had this great Idea to take the fly rod out on a calm day and see if I can get some white bass ona fly rod! what a blast it would be. was gonna use some clousers and crappie candy flies.

We've caught them with Chartreuse and White Cluser Minnows. They are indeed a blast if you find them "in the jumps", schooling and busting shad on the surface.

Those are a hoot when you get them on top---Last may, we finished the day in the Detroit River with a 2 hr nonstop blitz ---2 strips and hook up a fish---I used a silverish crease fly or a lightly weighted clouser with a lot of white and flash

I was visiting centeral texas recently and went out to the "white run" on a local river. Never seen such a thing with bass! Limited out two days straight (25/day) with an average fish length of 12 1/2 inches. Very cool experience.

We were throwing #12 clousers with bead chain eyes in white, whte/chart, and white/olive.

SWEET! My wife and I drove through Tennessee in 2006, and the streams
and rivers looked great.

A #10 olive wooly bugger has been my primary "fly" since this past December.
I tie it with either a gold bead, or small green bead chain eyes. The bead
chain seems to work better for me.

Which River? I heard the Brazos in February is awesome for white bass, of course I missed it this year, oh well.

Ya, the Brazos is great for Sandies if you hit it at the right time. I've fished it above lake Grandbury. It's shallow, but if you check every hole you come too you can pick up a lot of action with em.

Don't feel bad, I missed it this year too
