Youtube angler, Lake Fork Guy, targets white bass as they begin the spring spawn in Texas. White bass are native to lakes, reservoirs, and rivers throughout the Midwest but have also been introduced to lakes throughout the country.
White bass spawning activity occurs when the water temperatures reach between 55-65 and degrees, which can be anytime from March through May, depending on where you live.
During the spawn, white bass move to shallow water in high numbers, making them an easy target for anglers looking to load the cooler.
In the Spring, Lake Fork Guy targets fish in pockets, coves, and creek channels all of which need to near some type of current.
White Bass Lures
White bass feed on minnows, so, using baits that mimic small minnows rigged on light spinning tackle usually works best.

How To Cook A White Bass
White bass have tender, flaky white meat that can be a little bland to on its own. However, much like a potato, this allows you to add in virtually any flavor you’d to help counter what some would consider a mild taste.
LFG goes with Franks Red Hot and a cornmeal flour mix fried in vegetable oil.
With a clean, dry fillet, LFG dredges the fish into a bowl of Frank’s Red Hot sauce for roughly 5 minutes before dunking the fish into the breading.
The hot sauce absorbs in the fillet providing a gentle kick from its cayenne pepper.
The breading is a simple mix of cornmeal, flour, and spices. Make sure your oil is hot enough before breading your fish
Once the oil is nice and hot, liberally cover each fillet with breading before gently setting each fillet into the pan.
Lake Fork Guy waits until the fish is golden brown, once cooked he sets the fish on a plate covered in paper towels to dry.
Pair your fish your favorite side. I typically keep it simple with vegetables and beans.
