Well let me start by saying I apologize for the intro picture where I am shoving the fish down the camera lens. I was excited to do an Instagram photo and just wanted to use a little artistic license. It was a dandy of a White Bass, but of course it’s never easy to judge when you hold a fish out like that. Please forgive me.
The Walleye Run is over by most accounts, but I was thrilled to be on the front end of the White Bass Run. It seems like deja vu with 2013, no time during the Walleye, but a better schedule by the time the White Bass were showing up. I ended up fishing north of Fremont, Ohio, with my friends Darrin and Leo. Overall, the results were pretty good with plenty of White Bass, White Perch, Channel Catfish and a single giant Freshwater Drum. A few carp and buffalo were inadvertently snagged into, all popping off before coming to the net. The majority of the fish hit on Emerald Shiners on a 1/32 oz. jig, under a float. The bite was best right at dusk and shortly into the night, right as we were leaving. The next few weeks should be good!
