THERE ARE A LOT OF BIG BASS LAKES IN OUR AREA, IF I HAD TO CHOOSE ONE IT WOULD BE A DIVERSE FISHERY WITH BOTH A GOOD SHAD BASE AS WELL AS CRAWFISH AND OTHER FOOD SOURCES ONE THAT RECIEVES LITTLE ANGLING PRESSURE (AT LEAST FOR BASS)ON THAT ISN'T PRONE TO WINTERKILL AND THUS CAN SUSTAIN MANY YEAR CLASSES OF FISH.

THE CANNON RIVER/TETONKA WATERSHED HAS ALL OF THAT AND HAS BEEN KNOW TO KICK OUT SOME REAL PIGS CANNON LAKE IS VERY UNDER FISHED FOR LARGEMOUTH AND I HAVE SEEN NUMORUOS FISH OVER 6-6.5 # RANGE CAUGHT THERE HOW EVER THEY ARE FAR AND FEW BEETWEEN SO LOCATING ACTIVE FISH THERE CAN BE TOUGH. HOWEVER I HAVE SEEN ONE OVER 7 THIS YEAR AND ONE JUST UNDER @ 6.95 JUST A THOUGHT....

There were some real pigs too. Some were around 17". You could see them hitting the surface, throw your bait (Sasie shad) into the boil and WHAM. One right after the other.

Blue bird skys tomarrow. You should have been there today. grin.gif

I would find a lakes with good Bass populations that are to small for Bass turnies. Work one and move to the next.

This year I have cought Sm Mouth Bass as far up the Cannon River as Gorman Lake. More and More and More Bass Lakes every year!

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
