Fishing for White Bass – Bait

We weren’t using lures for white bass, this little guy was caught with Minnows. Fishing from a dock and just dropped the line down about 20 feet. You can buy minnows at most gas stations near a lake and even sporting goods stores. You might want to call ahead, but if you have a net, you can just catch them that way when you get to the lake.

My setup was pretty simple. I had a 6ft pole and 8 lb test. I used a 3-Way Swivel Rig for White Bass, light weight because you want the minnow to be able to move a around a bit.
