Bass Fishing has been great. There was a bass fishing tourney on Saturday on Fish Hook Lake. The first place team had a five fish limit, weighing 20+ lbs. The wind was tuff that day, but still lots of fish.

Sounds good! I'll be up on Eagle, Island and Potato this weekend. I'm guessing the best bite for LM will be deep, can anyone confirm that?

I've just added a pictire with my son and I. We caught these bass in about two hours. We brought them back to shore for a picture and then let them go. Caught them in 10feet of water, on jig worm.

Jig worm fished on the weed edge is a very effectivve way of catch lots of bass on the hook, it is also the way i caught my largest fish hook largemouth at just over 21" IN POST COLD FRONT conditions. the 4" gulp turtle back worm is a very good choice in both junebug and black. also a very good way to catch pressured walleyes.

Hey Jonah,

hows it going I was just wondering if you ever get out throwing some topwater for some lm bass. I know its not like seeing that big explosion from a muskie but it is still a very good time. I get my bro archery1 out there from time to time. If you ever want to go out maybe you can give me and my bro some pointers on catching some eyes on Potato, before you go back to school. I will stop in to Northern here next weekend if you are working, shoot the (Contact Us Please) alittle bit.

Just got back from God's country yesterday. I fished mostly on Eagle because the water was so low that I could barely get my boat through the channels. I've never seen it that low.

The bass and crappie fishing was very slow. I tried everything and every depth. It didn't help that a high pressure system moved through Friday night.

The northerns bit good on Monday.

We never tried for walleyes because I had heard that bite was even worse.

Hopefully things will improve by Labor Day wknd.

I have tried fishing eagle before with no luck, what are you using? I have very good luck on Potato, I use a scum frog in the pads and reeds and that usually produces very well. Lately I have been getting them right on the pad or reed line. I will be up this weekend I will let you know how the bass fishin goes.

i like using buzz baits as a search bait in and near classic top water stucture. works fast and fun to see fish blow up on. JOnah

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
