Bryant Lake Bass?

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I'm heading out to Bryant Lake this evening and I'm curious if anyone has anything to report from the last week or so since this cooldown. I'm hoping to get plenty of bass in the boat, and typically I end up with a few northern as well (despite a home owner telling me he's never caught any). Anyways, just hoping to hear good things, or at least a hint at what might be happening. You'd think this cool weather is keeping the skiers and what not off the water, but then again there are some die-hards out there.

I'll let you know how I do in case I don't hear anything before hand.

It's a nice lil lake. Haven't been there for a couple of weeks, but tubes, jigs, and cranks caught a couple. Well more so my buddy caught them and I grabbed them when they came to the boat side. 2 went 18", but I only caught the lil guys - figures confused.gif

Back in early August, we caught some "midget" bass with a worm and bobber (!?) just off the lily pads on the west side of the lake.

Well, we had a nice night out last night. Not a whole lot going on, but we still caught a few. Got 1 northern and 5 or 6 bass in the boat. The fish last night were either very hesitant with their bites (soft plastics) or extremely agressive (topwater). We had at least 3 or 4 fish completely out of the water missing buzzbaits or twitch baits on the surface. It was pretty fun to say the least watching that happen. Not a single fish caught deep though. We tried nearly the entire lake, and everyone single one came out of 4' or less of water, and all but 2 within 45 minutes of dark. Docks were so-so, having only caught 2 off of em it didn't seem spectacular. The best bite by far though on that lake has been topwater, and primarily near dark on the south-east bay, against the pads. Hopefully anyone who goes out there can have the same kind of explosions we had, cause despite half of our "hits" actually missing the lure it was fun to watch!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
