Walking the bank

Recommended Posts

We're moving into my favorite time of the year to fish Truman. From the end of September through mid-November, you can catch nice white bass and hybrids just by walking the bank and throwing topwater lures or Roadrunners. I like that both because I don't have a boat and because I love to wade and fish.

Does anybody else out there wade Truman in the fall?

Yes I, am in the same no boat situation as you and I wlak and wade Truman, But not for White Bass this is new to me and am very interested in more info. I have fished fro crappie, the occasional bass and fly fish for carp. Carp are a good time. I fish clear in the back of coves.

Where would be a productive structe to begin bank fishing for whites. I fish the Long shoal area for the most part.

Look for shallow gravel flats with the wind blowing straight onto them. The windier, the better. If the wind is blowing shad onto the banks, the white bass will follow. I fish mostly within the first few miles of the dam.

I have done this the past two Tuesdays. Two weeks ago, I had a good trip. Caught 25-30 decent whites and quite a few small ones, and one 18-inch hybrid, all on top. The day was cloudy, with a moderate NE wind. I fished from 6:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Last Tuesday, there was a breeze out of the south, but the cloud cover broke up early. I only fished until 11 a.m. Caught two decent whites and several small ones.

If Truman weren't two hours away from me, I'd fish it more often. Besides, the big hybrids at Thomas Hill are hungry.

Well it was cold, nasty and rainy on Saterday. The plumbing job did'nt go well and My vehicle threw a universal joint. So I didnt have a chance to do any white bass fishing from the bank. But the year isn't over yet.
