Bass lakes near Perham?

13 posts in this topic

Hi - My family and I are staying at a friend's house on Little Pine Lake and I am looking for a good bass lake in the area. This is the 3rd year we are staying in the area and I have not found a good bass lake to fish. I usually use plastics on deeper weed lines but I am having trouble locating fish. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them. Thanks

Try buchanan or devils lake.

Good luck. Everyone I know fishes bass catch and release, so why not share some spots.

Thanks for the help - I also am a sportsman who only practices catch and release. I only know lakes in West Central MN - Green Lake etc. If you need a good spot around there let me know.

I am from Prinsburg MN - I understand that you want to keep some of you "honey holes" a secret - I would too. I was just looking for a little help. It seems everyone just likes to talk about Walleyes!

It's the MN fish. Bass are pretty much just bait stealers to me. I do make it out with the spinnerbait in hand once in a while though. Good luck!

As you likely have already found out Little Pine is a waste of time for bass.Big Pine is good but have had better luck for them fishing shallower. Devils' has a good deepwater bite and isn't too large to figure out in a day.The McDonalds are all for the most part good diverse bass waters also.Lots of excellent oportunities in Ottertail country and the great part about it is that most everyone is chasing walleye wink.gif

We go up to Dead Lake every September, usually do pretty good. Lot's of points and weeds, Bass heaven. Haven't fished there in the summer but it's worth checking out. Clitheral and Marion are suppose to be good too from what I've heard but never fished them. We'll probably try Clitheral one day this fall, it has smallies too.

Good luck.

Thanks for the info - I might look into Clitheral for some smallmouths.

Rush lake just south of Perham has lots of bass, I've had good luck on Buchanan also, try the south end.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      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.
