White Bass Keep Lines Tight Above, Below Beaver Lake

Posted: May 1, 2014 at 6 a.m.

Jeff Fletcher swings a white bass aboard his boat during a fishing trip near the town of Beaver, where the White River meets Table Rock Lake. Jerk baits and single-tail grubs were the top lures during the trip on April 15 2014.

Lures and live bait both work for white bass during spawning season. Crawdads and minnows are tops for live bait. Lures that resemble a minnow will work. Fish near the bottom for best results.

Lures that worked near the town of Beaver on April 15 include a Spro McStick jerk bait, single-tailed grub in shad color and white Rooster Tails. All three should be effective in the tributaries of Beaver Lake.
