Upper and Lower Mission

Recommended Posts

I am going to be heading up to Lower Mission next week on vacation and I really don't know much about the lake. Has anyone fished it recently, what species have you been catching?

Thank you for any help!!

I fished it last weekend. Lots of boat traffic. We did ok with the bass and the northerns on the weed edges.

Lots of boat traffic...show me a lake on the 4th of July weekend that doesn't...

We just returned from there, Upper Mission anyway as my inlaws have a place on there.

Lots of bass drop shotting the deep weed edges in 12-16' mostly 2 lbs with a few 3-4 plus. Look for the sharper breaks...

Good notherns bass fishing, a couple 36" ers and other 30 plust.

Crappies and big bluegills can be found with a little searching. Crappies were in about 15' and the gills in about 9' in the scattered cabbage.

Had a great weekend for bass and northerns trolling the deeper weed edges. That northern slot seems to be helping. 2-34", and 1-31" and quite a few from 25" to 30".

Lower was really good Sunday morning for bass and northern. Worked the lily pad edges and some deeper water with spinnerbaits and worms and did equally well on both. Some nice bass, a couple of big pigs that got off, and 3 northerns over 30". Panfish looked to be hitting in about 10' of water on the weed edges.

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
