    Wipers black lines are alot lighter when they are juveniles. I have never seen a white bass at Olathe. If it was in fact a white bass, someone put it in there. The KDWP doesnt stock them in there.

    Yea,
    I'm a 100% sure it was a wiper. I've fished Olathe Lake all my life and never seen nor heard of a white bass outta there. Those wipers fight hard and when they are over 18" they taste great next to the potatoes! :big_smile:
