Launched at the State Park at about 2pm and cruised up to Oak Point. Water levels are back up with strong currents. Temps have fallen since last week and remained 47-48 degrees till will pulled out at about 5pm. We hit the timber with jigs and minnows looking for some 'eye action but the river walleye are still sluggish at best. A single bump was all we could come up with. As we drifted down stream we tossed some 1/8 jigs with twister tails at the fish we were marking which paid off with some nice white bass action. The one below measured 16 inches.

Here's two more, one at 15 and one at 11 inches.

It will be a great year if the Fox produces White's like this all year. A total of 6 were caught with these being the biggest.

Gonna try to get out tomorrow and see what a bit more warm water will produce. Talked with two guys pulling out saying they got 4 'eye's off the lakes. Crappie are still around but the larger ones are still far and few between. This weeks warm up should really help. :wink:
