It has begun! The white bass are thick in the Nueces River. Launch at 59 and catch limits down river. Or launch at airport and go up river and catch limits! Great time to get a quick limit for the freezer! 2 man limit caught in 3 hours on Wednesday.

If launching at 59, boats would be better bc that's where all the boats launch.. It's fairly narrow, but boats will be flying past.. Most kayaks launch at airport rd and just go north and fish the sand bars and are killing them up there too.. I trolled shad pattern crank baits. They dive from 2-5ft. Trolling down south of 59 worked best..

Nice haul. What time of day is best? Do I need to start at the crack of dawn?

Been fishing the river for 3 weekends in a row. White bass are staged at the mouth of the river and only just started to stage. I've trolled from the mouth to the 59 bridge, picked up a male here or there. Another 4 weeks and they will be thick, but not just yet. If u wanna find the fish luanch via the lake and troll the mouth. Limits can be found there, but its more miss then hit right now.

Friend of mine has been nailing the whites on the Guadalupe river, near the cyprus creek boat ramp, trolling shad raps. I am heading there this weekend!

I think that would be Rebecca Creek Boat Ramp # 11. It's about 5 miles upriver from the river mouth at the lake. Only ramp on the river. I'll be trying the mouth and a aways upriver tomorrow. FYI It's a good idea to have 4 wheel drive if you launch from that ramp.

Right now it's always going to be hit or miss as someone mentioned.
A lot of those fish you find early are pretty much resident fish that are not coming up river from the lake. They will follow the bait fish so if you can locate the bait balls you should be on the fish.
The cold fronts will slow them down and give them lock jaw as well.
It's early and the big spawning run is still several weeks away.
Your best bet is to troll until you find them and then either troll back and forth and try to stay with the school since they aren't heavily concentrated just yet.

We had a hard time caring fish on the Nueces casting... Even after limiting out, we tried casting the same areas and didn't have much luck. Everything we caught came from trolling... I know several guys that just have kayaks are limiting out way up river north of airport rd launch as well.. Guys casting at the boat ramps are catching too.. They are all over the river in the Nueces.

Happy Times are upon us. I just hope this year there are more etiquette at the air port boat ramp. And im putting this out there, but do not get your kayak ready at the boat ramp. Have it ready before you get there, so the ramps are not blocked

If you wait 4 weeks at the Nueces that just means more fish for us who have been catching already lol
