Bass

5 posts in this topic

i am looking for some good bass fishing in the area.. i know there is some but im not too familiar with the area. im from southern minnesota where there are not many good bass lakes, so maybe a little northern advice too. my sister lives in alexandria and i would like to spend a weekend with her fishing. any help would be appreciated.

I'm not a bass fisherman but at Minnewaska I couldn't keep the bass off the hook at any depth. Not sure if that is normal or not. Ate all my shinners before the eye's could get them.

I know that there are others who can offer you lots more advice than I, however, once the bass season opens, I would look for them on Miltona, Ida and the chain (just to name a few) in as shallow as a few feet of water. You can go as basic as a hook under a bobber with a jumbo leech.

It would not be unthinkable to have a 75-100 fish day, on our lake and I think on all of the lakes listed above, its possible.

As far as lakes like waska, osakis and lots of the smaller ones go, I just never fish them, I'm happy with what we've got on Miltona, so someone else is going to have to give you some ideas there.

Good Luck

I don't think there are any bad bass lakes in this area. Off the top-of-my-head I can not think of a lake that doesn't rate good for bass at a minimum. Some are excellent. During the summer period a leech and lindy rig fished on the deep weedline will give you 50 fish days easily.

I fished the opener on Minnewaska and couldn't keep the bass off my lines either. If we could have kept them, we would have been eating very, very well this past weekend. I caught a couple big ones on waska last year and am going to head back there again. Oh, and we were catching them in 4-20 fow....it didn't matter, they were everywhere!

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
