Nothing like big smiles and fishing! I’m having a great time introducing my girlfriend and her girls to fishing!

    That's great for some family fun and time together.

    Nice fishing! Skills developed from this activity including patience, catch dressing and contact with nature are great for kids.

    Looks like a blast.

    Nice walleyes and striped bass! Nicer smiles! Fishing is fun and being rewarded with a nice catch is the best.

    Beautiful girls and great big smiles.  What’s not to like!  Good job!

    Training women to catch walleyes for you, nicely done! :)

    Isn't that a Wiper (hybrid) bass?

    I think they are the ones with the broken up stipes

    They go by white bass and silver bass around here. Very abundant in almost all our lakes and uses all easy to catch.

    Yes, it's a hybrid

    Salts have solid stripes, like the 26 pounder on my wall

    Fresh waters don't really have lines

    and Hybrids have broken lines

    You have to be able to tell them apart here, because the limits and size restrictions differ per species.

    Hard to tell on a small wiper. As they get bigger they heft up......

    They're great fun to catch! I've never eaten them but heard they're good if you cut the red meat off and eat them fresh.  The big ones about rip the rod out of your hands when they strike.

    Maybe it is a regional or water clarity thing. I've caught thousands of white bass, but they had very dull unbroken stripes. (Had a couple pics of my own on Shutterfly, but can't even get on that site anymore. All lost I suppose)



    I don't like the taste of any bass. The fillets look very......... bloody. Although I recently read (never tried) that you can marinade them in milk, and that will pull the strong flavor out.

    That's what white bass in most areas of the TN River and tributaries look like. Some in the clearer tributaries have very distinct unbroken black lines. The ones that are crosses with the stripers (Rockfish) have distinct broken black lines, and a LOT bigger mouth. The stripers also cross with the Yellow Bass, and those much larger yellow bass crosses are nicknamed Eatabus Everythingabus; they eat ANYTHING that they can cram into their mouths, and cruise the shorelines doing so. I like the taste of white and yellow bass, IF they are properly filleted and prepared. Soaking the fillets in heavily salted milk overnight gets rid of most of the unpleasant taste.
