Miss Fishy- Nice fish!  I've run in to them in Onieda before during open water but never through the ice, boy do they fight!  Do they school up in the winter like they do in the open water?
I don'y know that was the only caught I was shocked at the size we get them in the summer to but never 16 1/2 "  ::)

They are a lot of fun on light tackle.  Wish that we had them in Maryland.  We have stipers, hybrids, and white perch which are all fun, but those seem to be perfect for light tackle...a little bigger than white perch and fight better too.  I've caught some in my day, but have never eaten them.  I've eaten white perch though and they're really tasty.  Miss Fishy (or anyone), do white bass taste pretty good?  How would you rate them compared to other panfish?

MissFishy,

Very nice fish. Its fun catching a trophy fish like this and then letting it go, isnt it. Makes it that much more special and keeps you coming back for more. Thanks for the opportunity to see a white bass for the first time. They are very beautiful fish.

Gee, I guess I'm kinda sounding like a meat hog here.  Didn't see that she put it back...sorry :-X  DOH!  I do confess that I eat a few panfish and trout during ice season (and don't feel the least but guilty about it and shouldn't), but I C&R everything during open water...everything.  Just my thing, don't expect others to do the same except to obey the laws. 

For the record, I keep about a dozen fish or less every now and then during ice season, just enough for a few meals to feed my family. 

Troll, I'm still crackin up about last week ;D

theres no such thing as meat hog and yes I have eaten white bass there about like regular bass not as good as gills or perch but ok they fight like tigers and I read in a book that they get up to 17" so I guess she was a trophy gut I don't keep fish I don't like to eat I'm spoiled only like perch gills and eyes  ;D oh and I think I forgot to mention my hubby caught it but it was on my pole while I was looking for perch ...     JIG AND MOVE  JIG AND MOVE

Miss Fishy, there are some hogs out there... But I guess if they are all eventually eaten, they aren't wasted, so in that sense, you are right.  It does irritate me that some people keep more than they really need and even more when I hear of those people throwing fish away because they have freezer burn.  But that is for a different debate on a different thread and possibly a different site...

Anyway, thanks for the info.

Fatboy, freezer burn is a thing of the past with a vac sealer. ;)
This is something I struggle with all of the time. I keep alot of fish, mostly bluegills. But they are all eaten within a few months. I keep very few largemouth bass, and I've never kept a smallmouth.
Like was stated before as long as you are within the law and you eat what you take home, I have no problem with you keeping fish. In fact, it's none of my business. ;D

Mike, I couldn't have said it better.  I agree wholeheartedly.  I didn't want to come off sounding like on the soapbox either... sorry!

I'm Ok with that.  If so, can you use coons for catfish bait?

Yep, as long as you first remove the hide. It will make someone a nice warm hat. ;D

Fozsey, great pic. I've seen some poodles in my life I would have liked to do that to. ;D

Whites are pretty good if cleaned and cooked right.  Make sure to get all the red meat off the fillet so you don't have that strong taste.

We catch 14-18" whites on a regular basis in Kansas.  There are some really nice fish down there.

Jigwiggler,

What you probably caught was a wiper. They are white bass/stripe bass hybrids and they do look very much like missfishy's white. I have caught wipers before but never saw a white until missfishy posted hers. Wipers can get huge too.

In Nebraska, both whites and wipers(hybrids) are really popular.  You can tell the difference by looking at their tooth patch.  A white bass has 1 tooth patch and a wiper normally has 2.   It is blast when they get the baitfish to the surface.  We throw topwater plugs at them and they really smack it.
