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!

      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.
