We fished the mouth of the river in Feb. and caught a bunch of whites and few stripers. The key for us was thumping. I am a bass fisherman and only chase whites a couple times in the winter so not sure if that technique works this time of year. Just youtube thumping for white bass and see what I'm talking about. Actually Skunked again Fishing is on there demonstrating Buchanan Thumping.
Minner Bucket, thanks for the plug. Yes, Buchanan is such an awesome lake with all the baitfish, and healthy gamefish. I'll thump like there's no tomorrow if I'm going after whites and stripers. I was at Buchanan yesterday large mouth fishing and was equally impressed with the LMB population.
