We have put some suggested white bass lures and gear together for you from Amazon.com. First, a couple of pointers from my experience as it relates to bank fishing for white bass and hiking along creeks and wooded trails;
1. Travel light. If you are just targeting these fish all you need is some essential gear and your white bass lures.
2. Make sure you have plenty of lures and your reel is pretty full of line. You will get snagged throughout the day and have to replace lures.
Listed below is a couple of affordable options to get you going on catching your limit and a nicer more complete package that will give you a little more options. Take a look, get an idea of what you may need, mix and match if you like, just hurry and get it going. There's a slew of white bass waiting to be caught!
Here are the suggestions for what you need.
Rod - Light/Medium Power, 6 - 7 foot rod (my preference is right in the middle at 6.5)
Reel - Needs to hold at least 4 pound test and doesn't really need to go over 8 pound test.
Line - 4 to 6 pound test will do (make sure your reel is compatible) go to 8 if you are fishing where there are a lot of garbage that will be rubbing against your line.
You will use the lipless crankbaits in the flats that are going into the creeks. Use the Chrome Shad or Blue Chrome in 1/4 ounce. Both options are just as good if not better than the jigs mentioned above when you have to move to the open lake.
Use the Bomber spoons when the spawn is done and the white bass are found over humps and near points.
