Virginia: White Bass

After nearly five years at Master Angler Level III, I finally got to Level IV with a 16-inch citation white bass from Buggs Island that I caught while crappie fishing with Butch Arthur. There are not many trophy white bass registered in Virginia each year [there were 5 in 2021], but a lot of research and a lot of luck put me in the right place at the right time. It was 11 years and 18 days between my first citation species in Virginia and my 20th citation species. I've caught over 100 citations during that time, but this one was extra special.
