Sunday May 5th wolf river report. Whitebass fishing at fremont Wisconsin. Turned out to be a memorable trip with beautiful weather. Launch out of chicos landing around 8am and done by 4pm. Water temp 54 early and around 57 when we left. Moved to 6 different spots from the first bend south of chicos to the mouth of rat river. We ran some few engine gear problem along the way but I figured it out in no time.

After the nuisance, we found the schools of fish around noon at 16fow just half a mile north of rat river. It was non stop action between the 3 of us. We are using heavier jig coz of the fast currents n most fish in my graph staying bottom. Fish prefer chartreuse color jig n minnow over others. Many folks are also using wolf rigger rig with red/silver flies with great success. I just love the simplicity of a jig over long leader n 3way swivel.

So we kept 130whitebass plus two bonus eater size walleyes. Guesstimate 60% of catch are all males and females are not far behind with firm eggs sacks. The run is yet to come. Get em before their gone!

That’s awesome! 132 fish in the box in a day of fishing had to be a blast.

If they're properly cleaned, they taste just fine. As good as bluegill or crappie, IMO.

You get rid of all the meat below the lateral line, and you have to clean the pink meat off the back of the filet.
