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.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
