PLEASE NOTE THIS SUBMISSION IS FOR A WHITE BASS! THIS SELECTION IS MISSING FROM YOUR SPECIES CAUGHT DROP DOWN MENU!I booked a guided trip on the Missouri River for me and my two boys for Labor Day weekend. We faced slow fishing conditions throughout most of the day and a number of chances were lost trying to hand of rods to the kids after hooking a fish. My patience and persistence was rewarded towards the end of the day when I hooked into my personal best white bass.
