Passing through Cohasset on Saturday morning, wondering about the gills on Bass Lake. Where would I start?

Pretty soon, they'll be fishing them on the east side of the lower part of the lake. From Hwy 2 go north on co. road 62 and park on the south shoal lake road, you'll see the lake to the west. Keep in mind you are accessing the lake through private property so tread lightly. Sight fishing at it's best out there. Keep in mind the limit is only 5, but i'll tell ya' from my june experiences out there, it's well worth your time.

thanks for the tip Brian. One question? What does tread lightly mean?

tread lightly, pick up any garbage, whether it's yours or not, don't chew up the guy's yard, stuff like that. If the property owner prevents access there, it'd be tough to access that part of the lake, as the public access is on the west side of the lake.

I was out on Bass yesterday and man, what a day! I fished from about 12 till 4:30 and caught 25-30 bluegills, a 18" walleye, a 13" crappie, tons of perch, and a couple 3-4 lb gaotrs. Everything was let go, hopefully that crappie will contribute a few more to the lake, as I believe there's not alot of them out there. I used both small crappie minnows and waxies. All fish were caught in 7-10 feet of water. If I would have brought my portable I coulda' sight fished for sure.....maybe next time, if this snow/rain doesnn't play too much havoc w/ the ice. No problem getting out there from county road 62, but on the way off the lake, the ice near shore got "spongy", I thought I was gonna get wet, but it is real shallow there.

It wasn't as good today as it was yesterday, but me and a buddy managed to catch a few bigger gills. Between the two of us we had 6 that were in the 9-10" range. We probably caught a total of 20. Instead of doing the run and gun approach, we camped out on a hole a piece, as the wind was furious out there. Hopefully we'll get a little cold snap to firm up the shorelines as they're getting worse day by day. I just don't wanna quit ice fishing yet! grin.gif

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did.

      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.
