The white bass are gorging themselves on thread fin shad on Lake Lure. This week, we're throwing poppers to nail white bass up to 4 pounds. Look for the boiling surfaces and get your lures in there. In between feeding frenzies, troll crank baits imitating the shad. We've found 20 - 40 foot water to be best, but they are coming shallow into 6 foot water at times. Largemouth bass are also mixing in there. When you reel in a white bass, have somebody else ready to throw in another lure towards your fighting fish. Often it will have a number of followers that are eager to bite.
Here are Eli and Brody with a couple of their better white bass.
