Bryant Lake Bass?

Recommended Posts

Aaron Carrell

Hey guys, I'm heading out to Bryant Lake this evening and I'm curious if anyone has anything to report from the last week or so since this cooldown. I'm hoping to get plenty of bass in the boat, and typically I end up with a few northern as well (despite a home owner telling me he's never caught any). Anyways, just hoping to hear good things, or at least a hint at what might be happening. You'd think this cool weather is keeping the skiers and what not off the water, but then again there are some die-hards out there.

I'll let you know how I do in case I don't hear anything before hand.

It's a nice lil lake. Haven't been there for a couple of weeks, but tubes, jigs, and cranks caught a couple. Well more so my buddy caught them and I grabbed them when they came to the boat side. 2 went 18", but I only caught the lil guys - figures confused.gif

Back in early August, we caught some "midget" bass with a worm and bobber (!?) just off the lily pads on the west side of the lake.

Well, we had a nice night out last night. Not a whole lot going on, but we still caught a few. Got 1 northern and 5 or 6 bass in the boat. The fish last night were either very hesitant with their bites (soft plastics) or extremely agressive (topwater). We had at least 3 or 4 fish completely out of the water missing buzzbaits or twitch baits on the surface. It was pretty fun to say the least watching that happen. Not a single fish caught deep though. We tried nearly the entire lake, and everyone single one came out of 4' or less of water, and all but 2 within 45 minutes of dark. Docks were so-so, having only caught 2 off of em it didn't seem spectacular. The best bite by far though on that lake has been topwater, and primarily near dark on the south-east bay, against the pads. Hopefully anyone who goes out there can have the same kind of explosions we had, cause despite half of our "hits" actually missing the lure it was fun to watch!

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
