    Was wondering if anyone had any reports on the yellow bass? I had heard things were slow and spawn was done. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    A very close cousin to the whitebass, They have a yellow hue to them and look like a whitebass but don’t get as big. They are in some of the lakes in northern Iowa but only a few from what I know. Thier lateral lines are the same or very similar to a whitebass.

    They are spawning but i don’t think they are done yet. I’m headed to clear lake in the am to give it a try i’ll let you know how it goes. The yellow bass are alot like white bass just smaller and they are way better tasting. And at least in Iowa there is no limit on them because the dnr would like to make them extict. They don’t do well in most lakes or ponds they out compete other fish and multiply fast and become stunted easily. The IDNR has had to draw down and kill off many lakes because of illigal stocking of this fish.

    You can catch yellows all year long in Clear Lake. Fun to catch, good to eat. Check at the bait shop to see where they are biting. Good Luck.

    There yesterday around the island. Bobber and minnow or small jig. Not as fast as before but still 15 males swarming a female in the shallows.
    Any carp shooters need to head to the weeds by the Baptist camp.

    Fished today and had about 130 by 11:30 then the wind was bad enough I had enough. All were nice big fish today! Some areas have a ton of small 5″ fish so you have to move till you find better size, usually not to far though. And next time I’ll bring my bow the carp were all over the shore line. Good Luck!
