JBDRAGON-Bass Fishing

Recommended Posts

George R

About 2 weeks ago you were going to fish Sewell. Was wondering how did you do. I can hardly wait. Will be headed up there over Labor day to spend a week. I live in Missouri, but Minn bass fishing is awesome.
Any suggestions on BASS fishing some other lakes? Catch and release.
Thanks.

I did fish Sewell.

It was the first time I fished it this late in the season. It took me an hour or so to figure out what depth they were at, but once I did we ended up with about 50 fish in 7.5 hours. Try the deep weed beds anywhere on the lake (10'-15'). We were catching them excusivly on 7" berkly gulps (darker colors). Nothing Huge was caught, but all were between 2 and 4 lbs.

There is another REALLY cool lake to try not far from there called Spitzer. This lake is LOADED with northerns. Many times I will fish the morning and early afternoon on Sewell for Bass and spend the evening hammering northerns on Spitzer. Heavy weeds all over the lake with Crazy structure and backwaters. I fished it for bass opener and caught several fish (bass). I was only on the lake for a few hours. I have never spent an entire day working this lake (you could spend a few days working all the bays). There is VERY limited space to park, and there are stumps and rocks to watch out for so go slow. I took a chunk out of my lower unit on bass opener. I was in 8' of water!!

My wifes family has a cabin on Pomme De Terre. I have been meaning to try to find the fish on that lake. I know there are some there.

I have also heard that Ten Mile has been hot this summer. Never fished it but it is at the top of my list for that area.

jbdragon- Fished both Spitzer and Pomme De Terre this year for bass tourneys. Spitzer is a tough lake since everything looks the same. Most of the back waters/eddy's look the same. But I only had some success on a few of them.(mostly fishing reeds with plastics) But we fished there early bass opener when the weeds never grew up too bad. And Pomme De Terre had some good success throwing senko type baits under over lying trees. But my favorite lake to fish so far is Big Chippewa, those under cuts are AWESOME! grin.gif Pulled some nice 4 pounders outta there.

I've heard good stuff about Devils lake in Brandon as well. Each year I want to get down there, but I just never get there.

JB;
Thanks for the info. Been away from a computer for a few days. Were staying at Old Towne Resort on Clitherall. We'll be up next Saturday afternoon. Leaving KC Friday Night...picking up the boat in Omaha and fishing by about 3pm Saturday. Was going to fish Norway first. Sewell on Sunday. Talked to a guy last year at Norway and he mentioned Spitzer, but didn't fish it. Not enough time...too many lakes. We'll be fishing in a Gray Sea Nymph with Missouri tags on it. Maybe we'll see you.

George R- Went out to Norway a couple weeks ago trying to get a few walleyes outta there, with no luck. So we switched over to bass fishing. Pretty slow i thought. We only caught 15 bass in the range 13"-16" in 1 1/2hrs. Mostly t-rigging worms or throwin senko type plastics.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.
