Located White Bass At Boyd

Post By: fishman1      Posted: 3/23/2015 9:53:05 PM     Points: 20156    
Today was the second outing on Boyd since last Friday. Friday was nothing but trout. Today it was real slow. Tried the north end with 0 results. Trolled around the south end and caught an 18 inch cutbow then located the largest school of white bass i've ever seen on my sonar. Trolled over them and had 3 out of 4 rods go at the same time and landed 1. Found the school again and hung 1 more. had enough time to make 1 more pass and hung 1 more. Only 1 small one and the the other 2 were 13 & 14 inches. The school ranged from 20 to 30 ft. deep. Wished we had more time to stop and jig for them. Maybe next time.

fishman - how far down did you run your lures to get those bass - do you use leadcore or downriggers?! What colors of plugs worked for ya?

I used to live on the lake and caught a lot trolling by the dam in relatively shallow water using a silver panther martin. Another place and method is close to the concrete intake structure on the southwest part of the lake using a live minnow halfway to the bottom in 15-20 feet of water.

A sunny day worked best.
