Long Lake -Dassel

21 posts in this topic

Hello -

I know I have posted a couple times about this lake but however our house is finished and I have been able to get out fishing a few times. I am mainly targeting Bass but for the most part has been pretty slow. I have tried Jigging a worm and topwater. The weeds seem almost 2 thick to throw any crankbaits. I am wondering if anyone has any pointers for this lake. Is it me? Has it been the weather?

Feel free to email me at: chad@amecommunity.com Hope to hear from someone. Thanks.

I heard that it is greener this year than it has ever been. Maybe that is hurting your fishing. I know there are a fair abunt of pan fish and Gators in there - not sure about bass

Hey dirtking,

It is loaded with sunfish - but really not much size. The water might be a little greener but I think most lakes are with the warm weather and no rain.

As for Gators in there. Any advice on where to catch them and what to use?

are you talking pike, or monster bass. We fish this lake every year for a bass club. Two years ago, we won it with just under 20lbs on 5 fish, this year we took 2nd with 16lbs. There is monsters in that lake, just a matter of where they are hiding.

Hi Bass N Spear,

I am talking Bass. I know there are some nice fish in there but I was looking for a little help as for where to find them and what to use. Thanks.

I was out tonight with my bro for about 3 hours. It was slow, but i think its becuase the weeds are starting to die off. I fished all the spots that i fished when i fished it for league, cuaght 5. Went deep from there, and only hit 4. All night fish, biggest one was 18 1/2.

This lake is different fishing style in the fall verse fishing it in the spring. Still alot of good fishing, just slower now then in the spring.

Thanks for the report. So that was you out there fishing in the ranger boat huh? The weeds are starting to die off - so I think you are right that could be part of the problem. When you say you went deep how deep? Are you willing to give me any spots? Also, does the lake get better fishing later in the fall when the water temps drop? Thanks Bassnspear.

I was surprised how much that water is down in that lake yesterday!! I think thats why the weeds are so bad this year... Lasted year the water was up alot higher and the weeds werent so bad.

That lake isn’t really that big so just go out and fish, there is a lot of bass in that lake. Flipping the mats is another way to caught bass in that lake. Ones the weeds die off you will need to find any green weeds you can…Deep or shallow… The green weeds will hold bass longer and they will start to school as the water starts to get colder.

Sounds good. I would have to take vacation on a Monday but I can do that. I definately need to learn a little more about bass fishing and that lake in general.

well we can try and find some fish. Unless you want to wait for spring when the fish are up. Last week when i was up there, the fish were in deep water, we didnt get alot, but what we did, were nice fish.

We can play it by ear I guess. When you say deep water how deep are you talking? 14ft? 20ft?

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
