Pequot Lakes Area

Recommended Posts

BassNut33

My Wife has to come up to the area for business for a few days next week and I am going to pull the boat up and do some fishing while she is working. I am a Bass guy, I was wondering which lake I would have the best luck locating fish fast? Should I head to one of the big lakes, Gull, Whitefish Chain, or is there a smaller lake that would be better?

Northlong is a good bass lake to try...there used to be a pro tourny on it but not sure if they still do. Otherwise the river is going hot right now with smallies, caught a couple yesterday morning that were nice size.

If you are staying in Pequot Lakes you could give Sibley a try. Its right in town and there are some very nice bass in there. Landing on on the NE side of the lake. Best bass areas this time of year would be in the Southernmost portion of the lake. Shorelines with rice beds, etc casting spinnerbaits would usually slaughter them. White with orange blades. You may even tangle with some big pike.

Thanks for the responses, I was thinking about Sibley one day and maybe Gull on another? I would love to hear what everyone else thinks.

Hubert is another good one. Small lake very clear. Gull would be a great choice but its a large lake and may be a bit much to undertake not being familiar with it. Could be a fun time for you though lots of different structure habitat to try.

I looked it up on my GPS and upper gull looks like it has a lot of structure I like to fish.

Fished Gull today and really did well. I didn't catch any giants, but did get a few over 3lbs. I only caught a few dinks that was what impressed me they were for the most part all decent fish. I am going to fish Sibley for a few hours tomorow morning.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
