    White Bass, Sand Bass. Silver Bass, all the same fish. We had big runs of White Bass on the Savanah River before Lake Russell was built. We'd throw two Little Cleos at a time and catch doubles till our arms got tired. Not as good as Crappie but cut the blood line out and it's pretty good eating.

    Thanks. No not a Johnson but it does resemble one. It's a Viking. Made in Japan circa 1950-60s. Found it at a flea market for, if I can remember right 3 bucks, I put some spiderwire on it and it works great.

    when you said 'bar fish', I immediately figured I learned a new fishing word for beers. Hahaha!

    My friend and I hit up a small mountain creek this weekend going after wild trout. It couldn't have been a better day. The weather was perfect, there wasn't another person in sight, and the first were hungry.

    Those sure are some pretty fish. What a nice day you had. The streams won't be running up here for a couple of months yet. It was nice to see yours running though.

    It's interesting that you are catching transplanted western rainbows in the east, and when I go to the Sierra Nevada, more often than not I see transplanted eastern brook trout instead of native rainbow or golden trout.

    Yeah. The browns are from Germany originally and the rainbows from out west. To be honest, my favorite thing to catch are native brookies, but we missed them this trip. Hopefully we'll find some next time.

    This was from last year, but this little guy is my favorite catch to date (the brown from my last post definitely rivals it though).

    What a log! That one is set to make some champion fry this year for sure.. I can never tell the males from females when they arent swollen with eggs, but that's a beauty, for sure.
    Out of some little, probably overlooked water too.. my favorite..
