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!

Little mantrap lake has a good population it also has special regulations on it everything between 12 to 18 has to go back. It has a lot of big bass in it it also is the area it is a little south of itasca state park.

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.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
