    Additional Information:
    Shallow flats can be a favorite location for Fall White Bass fishing on the windy days. Shoreline anglers and wade-fishermen can increase the distance of a cast by using a weighted cork a couple feet above their jig. Try to "popping" the cork and letting it pause between retrieves. The sound will attract feeding fish toward your jig. This pattern is just beginning and should hold true for several weeks if lake conditions remain consistent.
