Need Help: Tournament Advice For Pokegama/snake/cross Chain

Recommended Posts

bowhuntingboy1

Hi, am q 15 year old high school angler and I urgently need advice for the Pokegama, Snake, Cross chain of lakes for bass. We have only had time to prefish it once and it was awful. I am not going to wreck your favorite spot, heck I'm never going to fish this lake again unless I have another tourney. I know alot of you arent super big on bass, so I'll go catch em for you of you tell me where they're at. I really need this to help me advance to state.

Thanks

Matt

I’d love to help but I’ve never fished it.

 

Since the bass should be in summer patterns now my go to move would be to the docks with an 1/8 - 1/4 jig and craw if a tourney was was riding on it.  Otherwise I’d get on the weed line and fire cast after cast with a crank bait till I made contact.  Then slow down and see if a good school is there with drop baits.

If there’s a bridge or bridges on the river, try those.  I won a tourney on Tetonka once under the bridge over the Cannon River leaving Tetonka.  Basically held ground in the current downstream and casted a Florida rigged worm back upstream under the bridge.  2 limits.  My kicker to win did come from a dock later on.  

 

So I guess I can’t really give the bridge ALL the credit! 😀

      July for me.   I have had a couple openers that were pretty thin soup as well.

      Who writes this stuff? Neo nicitonoids are insecticides, not herbicides so far as I know.

      Was nice to hear that the Croix upstream of Stillwater was pretty much normal level, so I fished out of Osceola yesterday. Was an absolute beautiful day to be out! Didn’t get as hot as expected, nice and cloudy, and a nice wind blowing upstream. For the first time in history, I didn’t cast a twister tail on the river. For some reason I was deadset on jointed rapalas and clacking raps. Only caught 1 smallie, 1 walleye, and 1 pike. Lost about 5 fish, 1 of which I suspect was a turtle. Overall experience resulted in one of my better outings of the season!

      Always have had struggles in July.  Lots of forage to keep them fish full this time of year.

      You can expect excellant walleye fishing with little competition. Don't be afraid to take a trip over to Elephant lake to chase some slab crappies as well. The feed bag should be on.

      Does anyone know of any good shore fishing spots on the Minnesota River in Carver. Not Carver County, but the city of Carver. The river is pretty high right now, so I don't know if that affects anything. I know this one little ledge you can go to once you are inside the campground, and I have seen evidence of people fishing these, given some got a lure stuck to a log in the water with line still attached. And, what kind of lures should I be using. I wanna go for anything, except maybe catfish or muskies, because I don't have the gear for those. I did see a post the other day about shore fishing for White Bass on the Minnesota in Mankato, so would something like that be good for me? I guess my one question would be, let's say I am trying to jig with a soft plastic, how do I "avoid" the current? Thanks for any tips anyone can give me! If not in Carver, than in the nearby area, like Chaska, Jordan, etc.
