smallmouth bass fishing?

6 posts in this topic

I'm a new user at FM but I have fished north of sartel for the past year. I can find tons of 12" fish. nothing bigger. anyone willing to share what they do for bigger fish?

On a side note this past friday I was launching my boat at the same time as 2 jet boats with the name blazer on the side. nice guys and slick looking crafts. One guy stopped for a moment to talk but I didn't get a chance to ask him about the boat. who carries them?

thanks and nice site. Kasey

Kasey,

Thanks

Guy

guyscott - I found a site that shows fiberglass bassboats, they make that type too?

I had some succes by the hospital from shore, just casting craws on a jig. again nothing bigger than 16".

No fiberglass options....Fiberglass boats and shallow rivers with rocks isn't a good idea generally speaking.

Got to get up the creek to catch the better fish.

Sorry Kasey I didn't get a chance to spend more time talking to you. We had people from Iowa waiting to go fishing. Guy is right. E-mail him and he can fill you in on the boat.

Did you go up to the rice bridge? That area is suitable for your boat and decent for smallie fishing. Cooler water temps mean one thing! Good fishing is ahead. cool.gif

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
