  3. thanks sean let me know :)
  4. I caught two moderate sized whitebass in 15' of water trolling Friday afternoon on botoom bouncers and crawler harnesses but I have not been out in the morning lately to see if they are chasing the surface shad schools.
  5. I caught a wb in the ME section of the lake today. I trolled AC shiners for about 2 hours. The wb was the only fish i caught
  6. Spent most of yesterday casting hoover... no white bass but the crappie were out there.

    Scott, got a late start on Sat. - didn't get on the water till 8:30. Marked surface temps around 64-65 degrees. Took me a while to figure out where everything was, had to use my GPS to follow the depth contours and subtract 10-11 feet! Water is REALLY down quite a bit.

    Anyway, started off trolling and blanked...nothing...zilch. Noticed quite a bit of action near the shore and found a bunch of green carp had shad trapped up against a point. Caught around 10-12 of those in less than an hour. (Still fun to catch though.) Had to get off the water at noon due to son's football game. Didn't see any sign of WB in the middle section all morning....
  9. thanks for the info sean!!! and thanks to all who replied!!!
