Hey guys, I am new to the forum but I have really enjoyed reading some of the previous posts. I love fishing the river for catfish but I have not really targeted the BIG ones. After reading the posts here about it I think I am going to give it a shot. My biggest (by far) to date would be one close to 40lbs. That said, do any of you catfisherman who fish the Mississippi River ever fish for white bass or stripers? They can be fun to catch if the conditions are right. What is your favorite lure/bait for bass or stripers? Jug-or-not.
