Bass Opener

8 posts in this topic

Hello -

I am wondering if anyone has any reports for the bass opener? Did anyone make it out to Long Lake by Dassel? If so how did you do? I can be emailed at chad@amecommunity.com Thanks!

I talked to a few people that stopped out there and fished it for a few hrs. As everyone knows, that lake has a few big bass in it, but you have to know how to fish it. Last year we fished it for a tournament, and won it with 20 lbs on five fish. All depends on how your going to fish it and if the fish are there. Its crazy how a small lake like this, carries some nice fish.

Fished long tonight for the first time this year. We did not target bass like I would have liked to have done. But we did catch a mess of crappies and that is always good. We searched and searched, all we could get were sunnies and pearch. Then we stumbled on the crappies and stayed put till dark. I did make about 5 minutes worth of casts for bass and landed a nice 2 lber. Have the bass been hot out there? Im thinking about going out again soon ato chase them around that lake. thanks

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
