of Wisconsin’s rivers are notorious for their yearly spring walleye spawning runs. The Rock, Wisconsin, Fox, Wolf, and Mississippi Rivers are famous for these runs. What many anglers miss out on post-run, is white bass runs.



White bass (pictured above), run just after walleye usually stop running. A good old wives trick to knowing when the white bass are running is simple.



When lilac trees and bushes start blooming, it’s always a good bet that the white bass will be running.

White bass are fairly aggressive feeders. Anything from small minnows to jig and grubs and little spoons can catch white bass. There has been staunch debate about the table quality of white bass. Some love it and some hate it. If you are in it for a fish fry,  try white bass, if you are in it for fun, try white bass.


tight lines!
