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 Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
