smallmouth bass fishing?

Recommended Posts

I'm a new user at FM but I have fished north of sartel for the past year. I can find tons of 12" fish. nothing bigger. anyone willing to share what they do for bigger fish?

On a side note this past friday I was launching my boat at the same time as 2 jet boats with the name blazer on the side. nice guys and slick looking crafts. One guy stopped for a moment to talk but I didn't get a chance to ask him about the boat. who carries them?

thanks and nice site. Kasey

Thanks

guyscott - I found a site that shows fiberglass bassboats, they make that type too?

I had some succes by the hospital from shore, just casting craws on a jig. again nothing bigger than 16".

No fiberglass options....Fiberglass boats and shallow rivers with rocks isn't a good idea generally speaking.

Got to get up the creek to catch the better fish.

Sorry Kasey I didn't get a chance to spend more time talking to you. We had people from Iowa waiting to go fishing. Guy is right. E-mail him and he can fill you in on the boat.

Did you go up to the rice bridge? That area is suitable for your boat and decent for smallie fishing. Cooler water temps mean one thing! Good fishing is ahead. cool.gif

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
