Big Bass Waters

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any lakes in the alexandria area that are known for big bass. I've caught several bass between 19 and 20 inches this summer, but i have yet to break the 20 inch mark. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot,
kt

Kt, there are several lakes in this area where you can break that 20 inch mark. Lake Chippewa, Lake Oscar, Lake Minnewaska.
There is one in particular where it's very possible to have 15-20 over 5lbs in a day, and probably 20 over 3lbs. You need to stop by the store or call me if you want to now.

Big Baits Jig and pig is all throw and this particular lake. Black, Black-Blue, Green Emerald. 3/8oz to 1/2 depending on how deep you want to get in the weeds. 50lb Power Pro is a absolute Must with a 7ft Heavy Flipping stick.

Kt, the lake is in this area within 40 miles. I'm sorry I don't have and e-mail address so just give my cell a call listed at the bottom.

There are many good no name lakes in this area that are loaded with big Largemouth like that. A person just needs more time to go and fish all these lakes.

Kt, thanks for your replies, I run a half day trip 2 people for $150.00. Full day trip two people $190.00.

There have been many half day trips that are four hours where I will stay out there 6 hours. Fishing is great right now. I run Tuesday and Wenseday Night tournaments. Last night we were on Lake Oscar which is one of my favorites.

We brought 4 bass to the scales with a weight of 17.16 lbs. Are big bass was 5.87lbs
it was an exceptional night besides the fact that I broke the hubb on my prop. So I just will borrow a friends boat when needed.

Went down to the big bass lake a few days ago before we got stormed out we had a 5lb, and 2 4lbs on a recent trip.

Keep in touch thanks!

Hey smallie,

I could use some help on your secret lake. I know which one your talking about, but don't really know where to fish these monsters you talk about.

I will be in town on Friday if you would rather me stop in the store.

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in. 
    • monstermoose78
      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
