Long Lake -Dassel

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?

      Stopped by the lake on Friday and asked a gentleman that was out fishing.  He said 2.5" of ice.

      Figured I would start a fishing report to keep it separate from someone trying to get ice thicknesses.  Fished three different lakes this weekend.  First lake we got to on Saturday had a side by side on it so we felt safe walking.  Hole at access had 7" and we stopped in a few holes along the way fishing and we found an average of 8".  This lake was up on the WE Reservation, long skinny and deep.  Fishing was hit and miss pike were chasing around the gills.  Caught a few big bass which was fun on the UL's and caught a few small gills.  Found a few keeper crappies and kept enough for a meal.  Average was around 11" for crappies and 7" for gills biggest being a 13" crappie.  Second lake is a very known walleye lake around DL.  we had 8" out there also.  Made the hike out to a shoreline break/point and set up with tip ups and jigging spoons.  I suck at walleye fishing and struck out.  Buddies that were 10-15' on either side of me landed 2 EACH and the one tip up 30 feet away also landed one.  Perch were THICK!  I only caught 4-6" perch. Sunday my fishing partner over slept so I went chasing bluegills and crappies on a small lake.  Drilled holes from 42' to 14'.  Fishing was SLOW until the sun came out and then the sunnies were showing up in 38' suspended and aggressive.  Hole hopped because they were all 4-6" but that's all i could find out deep.  As dark came closer my friends started appearing and we could follow the fish up shallower.  Ended up with a few meals for a buddy and his daughter who came out.  A lot of weeding through small ones for keepers.  Very spooky fish.  Aggressive jigging to attract and then they pretty much didn't want it moved.  Wax worms were key last night. Good luck fishing.

      Yikes!  I haven't fished OT County yet but been on four different lakes in Becker.  Last weekend bigger shallower lake was at 7".  This weekend skinny long deep lake was at 8" and it had a side by side on the lake. Large body of water that when it warmed up reopened had 8".  Went to my honey hole and had 10.25-10.5" on it.  Dang near drove out but figured I'd wait so I drilled about 150 holes yesterday and didn't find any thin ice spots.  My shoulder hurts from drilling holes this weekend and carrying around my big 10" auger lol.   Becker County report.  Fish were SPOOKY!!!  Tried a few lakes for panfish and didn't really get into them but they were spooky.  They prefered smaller jigs tipped with wax worms, tried soft plastics but they wanted real things this weekend was my finding.  Fished a lake Saturday night right before dark had tip ups out and jigging with spoons.  One eye came on a tip up other 4 came on spoons.  Had guys 15 feet from me on both sides both catch 2 and the tip up was another 30 feet the other way and I didn't get a bite or a mark!!!!  That's my luck though.  People catching walleyes what I'm hearing are downsized baits on dead sticks.  Buddy got a 6.5 pounder C&R on a crappie/fathead fishing for perch mid day.  I don't know if weather has them in a funk or what.  Panfish are spooky and smaller jigs worked better 4 mm and 3 mm had better results then 5 mm.  5 mm I was finding was spooking fish when they would get near.  I drilled holes from 42' to 14' and had best luck when sun came out in 38 feet but I could follow the schools shallower as the sun set ultimately ended up in 19-21' for crappies and gills.
