***Update*** Todays spot...Thrilling...2nd cast 5" green pumpkin worm hammered by est 19" ?lbs largemouth, this was an incredibble fight, wow screaming drag took about 5 min to land... wow I have heard the rumors, and can say its true now. i caught and landed 3 more smaller than this :@ 2 16-17" and the other a 12" could see numerous fish following the worm which i twitched, shook, let drop, wiggle, trying everything, the one was a pig came right up to the edge of muck, twitch twitch nada, could see part of back & fin out of water. craziness. needless to say i was gone longer than an hour. and had no camera not even my phone which i left in the car. "no officer my grandpa lives down at the end he said this is the best spot to fish, we can go talk to him if we need to" or "i thought my credit union membership covered fishing here" I think the first is better as it is a bank now. end of update****

Well not much action to report, I have been fishing a couple days this week on lunch break. Had 1 nice hit on a rattlin rap on the Zumbro monday downstream from the water treatment facility, small crappies and gills at KR7 jigging wednesday (algae is on here,) more gills and 1 10" rainbow at Foster's on tuesday using jigs, caught the bow on a gold/black floating Rap. Now where the heck do i go today? i shoulda brought some corn and went to Silver, ah well I'll figure something out.

I would like to take my 2 oldest boys fishing on saturday any word on the bass bite from shore on the 'sippi? They want to go bassin, with all the half price tackle they bought at Gander with money they saved. I am so glad they bought lures, and powerbait and not video games, sugar, candy, etc.

Any info about bassin on the 'sippi or whatever would be great- we will be shore fishing.

There's decent bass fishing on the dike road between Wabasha, MN and Nelson, WI. I've fished there numerous times from shore and hammered beautiful bass. Topwater is fun during low light. Try to work the edges of lillypads. MossBosses can be effective atop the duckweed. #13 Floating Raps are another good option.

Plenty of bass down at Willow Creek last week when I was down there. On my 3rd cast I had prob the largest boil I've ever had down there. Just from the splash alone I'd put the fish 17+". I ended up catching 10 or so 10-12"ers on SkitterPops (smaller size) in the firetiger color.

I know there's decent bass fishing in the CC Manor Pits as well (Cascade Lake). You'd be better off with a stickbait/rattling trap, or plastics on the bottom (comida/senko).

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
