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!

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
