Labor day Bass action!

1 post in this topic

I had a good time on Mille lacs monday with two friends. BigPutz and Juggs, in search of topwater smallie action. we were on the southeast side hitting all the rock piles we could find.

Juggs got the first bite, but it didn't have a small mouth!

It was his first musky, fun!

We got a few bass here and there, and a couple of walleye on rapalas too, finally near the end of the day we hit the big school off a point feeding on grasshoppers that were all over, apparently blown in from across the lake by the north breeze. We got lots of nice sallies, no trophies, but really nice sized mostly slamming our topwaters!

BP nails a football sized bass.

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
