While we're on the subject of bass...

9 posts in this topic

Since Deitz has been generous enough to host a seminar this Saturday night in our region and we're thinking about the subject, who in here would classify themself as a bass fisherman?

Obviously, since I asked the question, I am. The region isn't blessed with a ton of lakes, but there's some good ones. There's some good sized fish in them to boot.

Just kind of wondering if I'm the only one that launches into some of the lesser well-known bass lakes in our region.

Yes sir (raises hand) I am a basser. And I think we really have quite a few lakes in the area. Expecially if you count a bunch of the ones just across the river in WI. I love the bass fishing in our area!

I fish Ann and Knife for bass once in awhile. Had a nice largemouth out of Knife last year, my biggest one anyway.

I fish for most gamefish, but love catching smallies. Too bad there aren't more good smallie lakes around here. The st croix puts out some nice fish though. Top water fishing for bass is the most fun in my opinion. Can't beat Chisago lake for bass size and numbers. Let's make all the lakes in the chisago area catch and release for bass!

I have a question on our stretch of the St. Croix. I've fished the St. Croix Falls to Nevers Landing stretch a bunch. However, I've never fished north of it. I know big boat navigation is limited, but I have a boat that would be suitable for that stretch. So, my question is, what's the best float stretch of that section of river? I know it's all pretty decent fishing, but what's the best start point and end point? I would prefer that my car windows don't get smashed in while I'm away, so the more highly used landings would seem the best option.

Ray, I plan on learning the stretch up by hwy 70.. there are quite a few landings up there.. I think its mostly canoe travel.. I did some landing wading last fall and hooked into some very decent smallies...

I figured it's mostly small boat/canoe travel. Deitz, we'll have to give it run this summer. I have the perfect boat for it. It's a hybrid canoe/boat. You can actually stand in it, so it isn't as uncomfortable as a regular canoe or as tippy.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
