    Im no bass fisherman, but occasionally when the cat bite is slow I will pick up the 'ole spinning rod and give it a shot... as far as I know, alot of guys pick them up around the break walls at the marina and around the dam...

    Last year I went with a buddy to the marina in early april to see if any of the early whitebass were biting and I caught this one on a white 1/16 oz jig and twister... 21" and 4lbs
