White Bass running on the Sandusky River

CWF2013MAY11bufwbTiming and conditions are everything when it comes to fishing for the Walleye or White Bass during the run. The past few years, I either couldn’t get out during the peak or conditions were poor when I had the opportunity to fish. Today, I was targeting the White Bass and was happy to find them somewhat willing to cooperate. Action was rather slow, but I caught enough to feel like the trip was a success. None of them were very large, just decent eaters if I would have been keeping them. The surprise of the day, was catching the pictured Smallmouth Buffalo on a minnow. I didn’t even know they would eat a minnow, let alone be able to get to it before the more abundant and aggressive feeding smaller fish. In the comings weeks, I will be heading back again.
