Bass around Savage?

Recommended Posts

Mattypeach

New to bass fishin in the past year or two. Have canoe (used but new to me this spring), love topwater, realize that I have lots to learn.

Have tried O'Dowd and happy to go back. However, would love to learn more about some "south of the river" spots that will leave some arm strength in me when done paddling the canoe to do a little fishin.

Thanks in advance for your help, patience and guidance!

Clearly lake regional park has some very nice bass and even some walleye's. Oh it also has some of the biggest snapping turtles in the world too. I had one that latched on to a sunny that must have been 3'long.

Good luck

I also live in savage and use my duck boat to fish for bass on crystal lake in burnsville and have had good luck there. Prior lake is another spot but hard to stay away from the boat traffic. Morning has worked best for me, the skiers don't get curious then.

Thanks to you both for the quick news! I will definitely check out both of these.

I have been on prior with some friends and the motorized traffic was just the reason I was hoping for some other areas to try to get to with the canoe.

Any bass in the lake SW of Hyland Park in deep Bloomington that anyone knows about?

I can't wait to get out there!

Hyland is a good lake for canoe and has some good bass and muskies. Hyland is apart of the Three Rivers parks just like Clearly and they only allow trolling motors uses. So you won't have to worry about the traffic. Plus they're smaller lakes too. Next to Hyland is Bush lake which can be good too.

Good Luck

Fish Lake near Prior lake is an awesome bass fishery and is perfect for a canoe. I wont go into too many details.. but I dont care for bass fishing, but I do make special trips to Fish for that purpose.. That should be definition enough.

Fish is also very easy to fish. The are some nice pike and walleyes in there to.

I dont live in the area anymore .. so I dont mind giving up some of my secret spots... SOME.

Fisher Dave:

All due respect sir, but that post is more confusing than most of mine.

Are you coming or going???

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
