White Bass?

Recommended Posts

How high could you run when you posted that? I'd imagine you could go dang near Sequoya in a bass boat. The river rose almost four feet in the last few days. It will drop out steadily this week, but it got a major bump from all this rain. I really hope it gets good and low again before the white bass are done. The water was gorgeous before this weekend's storms. Where did you see 58 degrees? It peaked at 52 on the USGS gauge which is the highest it's been for the last two weeks. By no means am I doubting what you saw or the accuracy of your gear. I'm just wondering how much discrepancy exists between the USGS gauge and wherever you were on the river.

That gauge is up in the moving water,

temps can be 5 degrees warmer in areas like blue springs that are protected from current.

you can safely get just a few miles up from blue springs in a bass boat, maybe 2 miles or so.. anything other than that is too big a risk. Only in the highest water we have had can you actually get to twin bridges. No way you could get near twin bridges in a bass boat right now

I've seen a couple jons with 25's or smaller cruising up and down and one really nice inboard jet boat upstream of neil's bluff. a couple of the smaller outboard guys have struggled so I'd be careful.

I was at twin bridges today, and nothing biting for anyone. Several people were fishing, including myself. The water is high, swift, dingy, and about 53 degrees. Visibility about one foot at the most. I saw some guys put in a 17 foot tracker with a 40 HP on it at the ramp below Hwy 45 Bridge.
