well decided to give it a shot for a hour or so lots of bass around in schools but for some reason didnt get any :? my dad had a few monsters but didnt set the hook in time did manage to get gills and i also got some pics of just the wwd right be4 the snow started coming down pretty good also if u guys believe me about this but i honestly think i saw a big ass school of walleye right outside the wwd right by the mouth of it like a school of 7 or 8 decent size but they could of been some carp





you can see the difference kinda the first one was be4 the snow of the others is when it was snowing

you gave it a shot! better than staying home.

i find fishing the wwd an educational experience. you learn so much by watching the interaction between the fish and your bait offerings and their behaviors.

get em next time.

I think those other fish you saw were suckers. I saw a few that stuck near the discharge even when the largemouth swam away.

I think I saw a similar school a few weeks ago. They were in the current where the creek and discharge meet. 15 or more of them all grouped up about a foot apart and each about 15+ inches. I thought I saw yellow bodies with a black line (bass) but didnt have glasses. They were skittish and ran if I casted right next to them.

Those were most likely White Suckers, although they will rarely reach larger than 12-inches from this waterway. There are other sucker species present throughout but they're much smaller specimens.

I also have a hunch that this school could have been Gizzard Shad, as they get HUGE in here, and get spooked very easily. Warm water, schooling, winter, it makes sense.
