Hit the lake with my uncle in search of some white bass on Thursday morning. Managed to find a few small schools scattered across different areas of the lake. Wouldn't hit the slab spoons, so we resorted to trolling. Fished until about noon before calling it quits, the wind died to nothing late morning and it got hot quick. Kept 7 in the 12 - 14 inch range, plus one bonus crappie from a midlake brushpile.

Not sure why, but the white bass population in this lake has really declined since the 2011 drought. I understand the same has happened on Lake Conroe also, but at least that lake has hybrids. I was encouraged by the number of 4-inch white bass that hit my trolling rigs though . . . tells me the there was a successful spawn this winter and they'll be big 'uns in a couple years.
