Auburn Report

10 posts in this topic

Fished Auburn this evening. Surface temp was 79 degrees. Bass were not hitting plastics, topwaters, spinnerbaits for me. We did pick up 4 on rattle traps, also picked up 4 pike on cranks. 15 FOW. Not a great bite, not the worst. Did talk with a guy that caught a 23" bass. He was pitching the slop.

23"!?!? Well if any lake can do it that would be the one since the record came from there. I love Carver co lakes and tonka to. Can't be bias:)

There are many good bass lakes besides Auburn. That lake isn't the only one in the metro that can produce 23" fish.

I just fished Auburn this morning, caught and released one large mouth - 13". Hooked into a large pike in about 18'FOW on a crank. Bite was slow and water level was down but we still made it to the south side. Saw a large pike in the shallows fish was 30+... This was my first time on the lake, so if anyone has any tip please fill me in, not looking for anyone's honey hole just some pointers...

Can you get through the channel that connects the upper and lower portions of the lake? The last time I was out there the beavers had that thing dammed up pretty good. By the way those beavers a freakin' hugemongous out there shocked.gif

That I dunno, you're talking about 8 lb bass,and it's very rare they grow that big in this state.

Sarge~

When was the last time you saw so many huge beavers! Seriously, I thought they were going to tip the boat!

How 'bout the weeds out there as well, they were thick when the sarg and I were out a month or so ago.

      I would suggest concentrating on panfish this spring from a boat or shore. Your chances of success vs trout would be astronomical! These are hard earned life experiences. Learn how to fly cast. period. Trying to learn fly fishing on  trout stream will be a lesson in frustration as you will be tangled in more trees than the stream. Fly fishing from a boat or shore allows you to figure out all of the nuances of the sport before moving on to a tree canopy!     Good luck on your journey!

      Wow that stinks. I see Springsteel put up a pic in fb of 27 lb pike caught out there yesterday somewhere. Are big suckers easy to find in town right now?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
