Caught a few by accident, but love to catch them 'football whites' i like to call them. You know, 1-3 pounders. They are in the lake, me and my brothers have caught them, iv'e seen pics here of some caught. Are there summer patterns or spots where they can be found?

In the past, I have done real well on the white bass in Lake Houston. The last 2 years, I have been having a hard time finding them and getting them to bite (other than spawn). I could normally go and get a limit most anytime. Since the 2011 drought, they have been alluding me. Other that I have talk to have been having the same problem. The east side of the Lake close to the dam generally produces. Hope this helps!

Yes, the white bass have been really tough to find in LH since the drought. I heard the same type of results coming from Conroe also. I've been catching a few, not big numbers by any means . . but the ones I've been catching have been in the 15 - 17" range. I'm not sure if we've had a die-off that's somehow related to the drought, if it's the natural cycle of white bass, or if they went over the dam. I've been catching very few small white bass, which tells me the spawns haven't been very successful. They seem to be in small scattered schools hanging along the steep drop-offs. Don't rely on the birds to tell you where the fish are . . . these bigger fish don't seem to push shad to the surface very often. I don't see the gulls working pods of shad like we had a few years back, where you could literally catch white bass after white bass under those gulls.
