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!

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.
