Bass Lakes

5 posts in this topic

My family has a cabin between Park Rapids and Bemidji and we have decided to get together up there this weekend. Since it is bass opener and that is pretty much all that I fish in the summer I was wondering what would be some good lakes to try. Any help would be appreciated!

I love fishing bass on Long Lake they have a great population of avg size bass and ive seen lots of nice 3-5 lbs taken out of that lake, there is so much structure which makes it a fun lake to fish, also like they stated before Lake George was real good for bass the only time I fished it.

Wow! Thanks for the help everyone. Its almost embarrasing that I have never fished the lakes up there but it has always seemed like the only time I get up there is for deer hunting. Should be a great family weekend though. Once again, thanks for the help.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
