East Metro bassin fun - old report

1 post in this topic

Old report - Was out last Sat. on small east metro lake, and we started slow, but ended up about 20 bass or so, at least. and the two biggest were 18.5" and 19". Most came on senkos, but the biggest two came on white Yum tubes. Nothing on cranks or topwaters, but we saw some bass hitting stuff on top. When we left, we decided to motor in real tight to shore, and holy cow did we see tons of bass, big and small, in the very shallow water. By the time we saw them, they were most likely spooked by us, but next time out I will try with smaller senkos right against the shoreline and against any and all small piece of wood/rock/etc.

We had fun, my borther got the most on red or purple senkos, I was using white senkos or white tubes, then switched to purple. Got the most bites and hookups on the weed edge. Most did not bite hard, just had to watch the line for movement, and then cross their eyes smile.gif It was fun.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
