Bass Lake Little Pine TWP.

9 posts in this topic

On a map I see this 81 acre lake south of CoRd.3 between Molten and Lows. I tried to get to it this fall but I didn't bring a chain saw and of course i Needed it 9 miles in just past another puddle called Snodgrass. Anyone out there know anything about these lakes (Bass or Snodgrass), Fished them or heard anything about at all? Any info is appreciated.

3 or 4 years ago a buddy and I hoofed it through the woods from Moulton to Bass. We figured it had to be loaded with crappies, and it was. Unfortunately they were all stunted, I don't think we caught a single one over six inches. Did I mention it was -20 that day? A landowner on the lake was already fishing out there when we got there. He showed us a nice trail leading back to Moulton, so the trip back was a lot easier than the trip in. It was an adventure, but not a real successful one.

Thanks for the info guys! Pete that was exactly the info I was hoping for. The DNR survey has an average crappie of .25lb which for an average is very nice! But the survey was conducted in 1967.

Pete, if you jog your memory can you describe where on Moulten a guy would look for that nice trail. I am somewhat familiar with the lake.

Their is a public access to moulten via cnty rd 3 find the creek and the deep hole we caught some fair crappies a few weeks ago. If you look on the lake map u will see what eye mean. Good luck.

Are you talking about Moulten or Bass?

I have fished Moulten a few times but I seem to bere that at the wrong time. Is moulten a morning bite?

Moulten can be erratic. But I typically have the best luck there at night for crappie. Anytime after about 8 pm or so Though I have managed a few nice ones during the day.

Bass is full, I mean FULL, of crappie's but they are small. The one nice thing about a lake like that is the practice. You will get a-lot of jigging and setting practice due to the amount of fish in there. Nice place to try out new techniques, lures, jigs and presentations.

I have been back there a few times hunting. You can get back there from co. rd. 106. You turn on a logging trail called Rays road. Its just north of where two huge white pines are on the shoulder of the road. Its about 6 miles back on some rough trails. There is an access on the south side of Bass lake. Good luck!

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
