Bass Fishing in spring

13 posts in this topic

Like Smallmouth Bass Fishing? You NEED to try Big Turtle Lake in Itasca County. It offers the best in Smallmouth Bass fishing in the county. I usually go just after the spawn in june, i'v never caught so many fish before.

I love the people that think bass ruin a lake. Something has to fill the role of eating baitfish and perch, and if fisherman are keeping the walleye and throwing back the bass I wonder which there'll be more of... It isn't like those fish haven't existed in a healthy balance for thousands of years prior to our arrival here...

Count me in,

And as a percentage rate the walleye population is being kept way more than the bass population IMO.

      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?
