I know that white bass is not all that popular in mn or else the j4 folks would all go there and fish them all out but I'm sure there is a pond somewhere that holds them right?  I mean in mn hmong area. 

I'm scoping out a few but I need more.  Like for instance.  Stillwater is not too far.  This hmong guy be fishing by a power plant. I'm not too sure about eating the fish there but to be able to put myself on a white bass, now that's history in the making. 


pix for illustration. 



And no, I'm not taking a 4 hours drive to hook up with hmongrock for some white bass.  It is still covid season ya heard?

Only thing my uncle knows are them ponds.   He's a retired ocean fisherman from the deep and been doing it all of his life till he retires.  Retiring age is no car so without a mode of transportation, all you got are them land of 10,000 lakes to choose from and they typically have your typically fresh water gills, crappies and large mouth.

The guy lived both in wis and mn and does not know about any good fishing hole.  I fished with him before.  It was the first time I uses a bait shop bought leeches and caught my first large mouth on it.  In cali, they don't sell leeches for some odd reason.  Maybe illegal for invasive species I dunno.

I want to put him on something different.  Maybe a walleye, suger, white bass or even them little smelt.  Gotta put him on something other than starter fish cuz the guy literally fishes on a dock, next to a bunch of kids who uses their mickey mouse rod and reel. 

I think the guy deserves a last hoorah before he does cuz at 90 years old, you can't expect for next year to put him on some fish.  It has been 7 years I haven't been back to the midwest. 

This trip is all about him and spending time with him before he dies.  I might not have this same opportunity for next year. 

I haven't caught me a white bass either.  Striper, that I caught many and plentiful but white bass intrigues me.  I want to do it on a live minnow and artificial lure.  If covid wasn't here, I'll take him to wis and fish behind hmongrock house and catches all of his wipers.   :2funny:

adding all of my notes here so I can easily access it later when I'm in mn. 

They live in Ramsey county so anywhere fish able near that stretch, I'll do it.

Dude

Im the whitebass, expert
They bite plastic, worm, minnow, fly, etc...
Not too picky

You miss the spring run
Best shot is the fall run in October
Thats when they pack on weight and eat like crazy for the winter

Catch them by the bucket!!!!

Had it not for covid, we would of gone to wis and fish there instead.  He got families there so killing all kinds of birds with one stone. 

I probably know more about white bass fishing spots by a bridge in wis than I do in mn.  The goal is not to catch a bucket full.  The goal is just to catch one and eat that sucker up.  I already know what stripe bass tasted like.  A wiper or hybrid or white bass, that I do not know unless we buy them at the local fish market and those are not fresh kill. 

Mn trip this year.  Gonna be there by Thursday next week.   Fish and bbq and maybe mistake lake casino is all I'm gonna do.  Anything else like checking out protestors and what not is fantasy thinking.  I'm just sad that there will not be any j4 or flooding with hmong refugee from all over this year.  Not club either.  Gotta go back to basic and just do what I can over there to kill time.  I already did my covid testing with antibodies last week and still waiting for the results either today or tomorrow.  Got to make sure before I bring the nasty over to mn.
