skunked on Swan

8 posts in this topic

Fished Swan lake last night. Tried just about everything... T rigged worms, different weights, minus 1's of different colors, several different color and blade variations of spinnerbaits, buzzbait, Comidas (wackyrigged), Deeper DTs (4,6,10's of different colors), Jig-n-craws in browns and blacks no no avail. I did catch a 22 inch Channel cat on a 5 inch white power bait worm trigged in about 3 fow. Needless to say I was a bit frustrated... I heard it had bass in it, now I'm thinking otherwise. Fished from about 5:45 till 8:45pm... What gives? No weeds to speak of with plenty of shoreline fallen timber and tree cover, only a handfull of docks on the lake. Where could they be? Max depth of what? 12-14 feet? Strange... frown.gif

I have only caught one bass on that lake. There might be more there, but it is a small population. smile.gif

I haven't intentionally fished for bass out there for a few years, but we used to catch some in the northwest area of the lake. We used weedless scumfrogs in the shallow bay area with some succes. Beetlespins and rapalas also worked well by the docks, but the biggest fish were caught in thick weeds.

Bass n spear... Drop a hint if you would... I'm puzzled. I seriously thought I gave it a solid effort and the conditions seemed favorable as well. That's the weird part. I was thinking with what I was doing " No way I should be skunked with what I was doing". E mail if you would rather not post specifics. Thanks. Fever. smirk.gif

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
