White Bass Smackdown

Reply
My son Ben and I had a blast chasing white bass during the spawn run last weekend in the Sabine River in southeast Texas. Caught our limit of 50.
Used ultra-light tackle with 1/4 ounce road runners and silver Lil Georges.

Is this the same fish as a 'Sand bass' as my son in Texas calls them or a 'Bar fish' which some of us in La call them

I'm not absolutely certain, but I do believe you are right about those names, bar fish and sand bass, for white bass. Whatever, you call them, they are awfully fun to catch.

If you like white bass fishing head to old river in about two weeks when the river is at flood stage. The White bass pile up on the gravel roads all over the landing which will be under water.

YES... THE 'WHITE BASS' IS THE SAME THING AS THE 'SAND BASS' AND WE ARE EAGERLY AWAITING THE START OF THE YEARLY RUN HERE AS WELL. (ALSO KNOWN AS 'BAR FISH'.
