Is it just my impression or is it common: the bass fishing seems to be very sllloooooowww. Have a guest here for a few weeks and the bass fishing has been tough.

Although we are highly skilled casters, marvelous boat handlers and incredibly good looking devils the fish just won't cooperate with us.

They're transitioning, and scattered all over the place. This hot weather should help put them in line.

Are you fishing up shallow? I found a ton out on the weedline this past weekend.

Two weeks ago we landed 104 fish in 6.5 hours. Less than a week later we only landed 20 fishing the same areas with the same presentation. I would agree with them being in a transition.

That is exactly what I found this past weekend, they all tucked tail and found some deeper water spots or they were there but being lazy in the shade.

Yeah, we have been poking around the shallow areas, not really getting too serious about it. I've been waiting for the weather to settle down a bit. Then maybe I can find a few with my flyrod and popper in the shallow stuff.

Partner and I were out for six hours on Saturday fishing mostly less than 3 ft. depth range. Nothing under the 14 inch range biggest around 4lbs. all nice quality fish I'd guess an honest 25-30 pounds of fish total. Half on spinnerbaits half on jig n pig. Their bitin fine but lookin forward to the Summer patterns to kick in,more predictable.

I've been doing good on the weedy flats - 6-8 feet of water with Rattlin Raps, spinner baits and Slurpie Shiners. I was on Rush 2 weeks ago, the fish were in 0 to 18" of water. Nothing huge, but lots of 2 pounders, all on spinner baits. Interestingly there were a couple other boats out farther from shore in the rushes but they didn't seem to be doing as well. I haven't had much luck on the weedlines yet, can't keep the snot rockets off the line long enough!

      I have read this also.  I picked up 2 of the Honda 2200's and the parallel kit when we bought ours this spring.  Haven't had the chance to use it yet 🤔

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket
