    The white bass bite is on at Storm Lake right now.Cast 3″ Powergrubs or twisters of your choice around the shorelines.We caught 40 of them in a hour yesterday.

    Ryan,

    Looks like fun. Man, there isn’t going to a safe place for the the NW Iowa fish when the boys grow up. You must be very proud!

    Thank you Ryan! You are getting us striper fanatics pumped up. How warm/cold was the water? I didnt expect any near shore activity until the water was about 50deg. These werent headed upstream to spawn, where they?

    Were you fishing the windblown shore?

    Thanks man!

    Boy, now I wish I would have brought my poles back up to school with me. It hurts being less than 500 yards from where the fish are biting and not having my gear with me

    A cheap combo from wal-mart might be in the works just to get my fix

    Thanks for the pics. This is one lake I have never been to but I hear the walleyes have made a big comeback. Also that it lives up to its name when windy. The white bass are lots of fun to catch. Ryan, your boys will appreciate all their lives the knowledge and fun you have shared with them and will continue to share with them about fishing. Great memories and great Dad/Son relationships are taking place.
    Thanks, Bill

    You’ll be trying to catch post spawn eyes so the bite might be tough.
    I would drift with live bait,or jig combo’s.
    Maybe you can find some active white bass,fun to catch.
    Best of luck.
