Got into the Mother Lode of big white bass yesterday on the Sabine south of FM2517.

They hit chartruse over white clousers with abandon. Many fish were over 3 pounds and 17 inches including the one shown below which we are filing for the water body record on the fly. On a 5 wt rod, they are a terrific sport fish, terrific.

All but a couple of the fish (kept for supper) were released. This was consistently the largest white bass I have ever seen in my years of fishing the runs in Texas. Its going to be a great run.

Nice bass, congratulations!! How much difference does a striper taste from a black bass ? Been a long time since I've had BB .

Neither pictured....but totally different to me. Also depends on where they are caught. I catch a lot of stripers from Livingston and do not like how they taste there (also fish advisory in effect there)...but from Ouachita in Ark. they taste much better. From salt water, a striper is superb!

Outstanding fish!!! I'm jealous. I thought catching 14 inch white bass on my 4 weight was great. I can't imagine what fun that fish was to catch.

Congrats on the record thumb

Congratulations on the pending state record! My son wants to try the Sabine this weekend in our kayaks - can you tell me if the current is reasonable for a couple of paddlers? We would likely put in at the same spot you did. Thanks!
