The last several weeks, when I read the fishing reports for the Fairmount area in the outdoor news, it says people are catching yellow bass on several of the lakes. I looked all the area lakes up on lakefinder, and there’s no signs of yellow bass...I don’t even think the lakes had white bass in them. So maybe they just meant yellow perch. Or, is there a new yellow bass population coming along down there?

There are yellow bass in Fairmont Lakes. I caught some last summer and this winter. I didn't know there was any either but they were definitely Yellow Bass.

      Looks like a cougar to me.

      Interesting pic!!   Could be the pic but looks to dark and fur seems to "fluffy" for a cougar?   My first thought was a bear, neck seems to long and the color change on lower jaw says no.   I am going to go with a wolf.   Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks to the expert advice from Mr EyeGuy 54 (Royce) I was able to find myself a super nice spot of living green cabbage weeds. Not 5 minutes into my first pass I had a nice 19” pike. Over about a half hour I ended with 2 nice eater northerns and threw back two smaller ones and released 3 largemouth. Trolling cranks on the weedlines on braid was the ticket. It was sure windy but it was barely doable. Went back out this evening and got a 21” pike and lost probably 6 due to boat control issues in the wind. And a few more bass and another on a spinner bait. Hopefully can get a few more casts in Saturday or Sunday but we’ll see what the weather does. If you can get out take advantage of it. But please wear your life preserver and be smart water temps are about 45 degrees and will continue to drop fast now. It doesn’t lake long for things to go south quick. All in all a good season lots of great memories and great fish boated. So long open water 2018 and welcome ice season 18-19!
