Does anyone know anything about basswood lake near little long? I was thinking of going there sometime but i dont know anything about it. I heard there are some good crappies tho.

That's Bass lake, not Basswood. Basswood is a whole different ball game. Bass Lake is good for panfish. I've fished it a few times and a lake depth map would give you some good ideas of where to start - for crappies look for some depth. Many people fish near Dry Lake Falls, but with ice conditions as they are, that would be VERY treacherous right now.

As mentioned above, it is Bass Lake, not Basswood

Went back there years ago....The name says it all, albeit the bass of the green variety

Didnt realize the name difference. Thanks for the info. I walked out there a week or two ago and the lake was still open by the falls.

Where is basswood lake? I have heard about it.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
