Dropped at 8am at the Neosho River above Fort Gibson lake. Was on vacation everyday last week so was able to fish everyday and just tore them up. Got on the water and looked at the graph and saw the water temp dropped from 56 to 48 and thought grreeeaaatt.... Dont usually keep fish but today I had a buddy that was craving some so I told him we would keep a few....that was before I didn't mark a single thing for an hour. We started marking spoonbill grouped up together which the guides were chasing them like crazy. Annnnd then it started snowing... what??! I tied on a deep driving crank bait when I saw rock like marks on the bottom and started trolling and picking up a few sand bass here and there. The clouds moved out and sun came out and really started heated up the river, it was now 52 surface temp. We started throwing up against the banks like largemouth fishing and it started really producing. As the day went on they started schooling up finally where we could anchor down the trolling motor and get after them. Go go minnows, crank baits, and of course Axman sand bass package!!!!

Great looking catch. Been many many years since I've been in a white bass runs up north. Haven't gotten into them down here yet but would love to do what you did and even better when they shallow to do it with a fly rod.
