Has anyone heard about any white bass running up on the little sac river?

A bad day fishing or hunting is better than a good day at work anytime!

no replies, so I'm guessing either they're slaying 'em and no one wants to say, or it's too early. I'd vote early. Here this and next week though, it's supposed to warm up, and you'll probably get some walleye and a few whites moving up. A little rain would help too... If anyone's been, holler...

Water too cold. Wait a few weeks or maybe even days if it warms up.

I don't want to start a new topic before really before the little sac forum heats up, but has anyone ever fished at night around the Taylor Bridge access? I'm thinking night/twilight would be better for walleye, but do whites also bite at night? I tried once at night there, but when you're by yourself, it can be a little creepy - gave it up after a couple of casts (didn't have a light - it sure woulda helped).

Warm weather this week, and chance of shower! That oughta get a few walleye and early whites up no? Last year I caught like 3 whites and one little walleye (about 9 inches = a toothy stick with fins). Lots of crappie tho... This year = new opportunities.

Was up on the sac today,had no luck at all with whites caught 5 largemouth.I think iy is still a bit early
FYI if your in a boat and put in at aldrich be careful around the mouth of the river it is really shallow.As far as fishing at night
I have never tried but will.this year with a light.

I would imagine you could get on the walleye right now but if that water temp is in the high 30's and low 40's there probably won't be any white's there yet but I have seen a few smaller males come in this early. I am going to head to taylor possibly thursday or friday I will fish there.iron bridge and 215 bridge in morrisville if they are biting i will let you know but I am going to focus on walleye for now.

Indeed. I would be heading up to the lil sac, but I just pulled an 18" walleye out of the James this am. ;) Let us know how it goes - I'm itching to get up there.

I went down this morning about 7am we fished Taylor bridge,steel bridge, and Morrisville bridge with nothing did not see any sign of white's being any where in the vicinity. Did see a guy a Taylor this morning catch a nice 20" walleye. I caught a lot of LM and a nice kentucky and a decent smallie my brother did the same there is a lot of small LM but no white's and this front darn sure didn't help none.

Good morning. "WHITES AT NIGHT". Sounds like a good movie name :) I met two gentleman one night at the Blunk Road Boat Ramp on the Upper James River Arm near Taylor Shoals last year and they were catching Very Large WHITES on PURPLE BEETLES. These men also said that they use these Beetles on all the Lakes in the Ozarks. Especially on Stockton when they find SHAD/BAIT FISH on the RADAR. They drop them beetles beneath the SHAD/BAIT FISH and catch nice WHITES and CRAPPIE.

But yes, they were doing pretty well at dark. We caught some nice WHITES on the JAMES this past Friday on White Rooster Tails. I took advantage of the .94Cent Sale at BASS PRO last week.

Last Summer, close to Orleans Bridge i caught 7 Large Mouths and 9 WHITES with the White Rooster Tails on the Little Sac. While the Bass were chasing SHAD on top of the water, I Boated all fish in 15 MIN. Sounds Crazy. My son was a sleep in the bottom of the boat. I did not have time to put the fish in the Basket. They all landed on him. I was trying to wake him up. By the time he got up and tied on a rooster tail, the action stopped.

I hope the LITTLE SAC WARMS UP SOON TOO. :)

Id say those fish aren't in there yet. Stagging themselves right outside of the mouth. Has anyone graphed them yet around there?
