Has anyone fished Pokegema or cross lake for large or smallmouth bass. I have a tournament comming up on those lakes along with the river. Any info would help, thank you in advance.

Hi ironmike: I live right in the area. As far as the Bass fishing goes your best luck is probably going to be on the Snake river between the two lakes. Plastic baits (crawfish and worms) probably the best bet. If you fish the river, fish near the old wooden bridge just off the mouth of the pokegama outlet. Also watch out for rocks coming down the river. The High water helps but there are some spots that are not marked and you can nail them so go slow. Good luck and hope this enough info to get ya started.

to iron mike: Using the public access in Pine City I usually will go down river and under the freeway bridge on the right side you will see a littl red cabin on the island, also on the right side go through a small chanel going in to a little pond type of water on back side of the cabin which also you can sneak even back farther in which is another type of pond, this area I have fished for Musky- but have landed nice Bass on 4in top walker made by Ciezo which is a plug for Musky but dont be fooled by this type of plug because I hit on to a lot of Bass in river area: using trolling slow or even casting frog look or orange type.
Also on Pokegena there is a island on North end usually work area with same plug, also go across from Island and there is a small channel type going in to area off the lake by itself tried using a little wood plug that looks like a 2in small mouse made by Hell Raiser= works well when fish dont want nothing big the mouse type plug is Pink bodied with brown hair on tail hook part on end.
have a good fishing year

PS Read post that Babe Henkeliman gave you: These are very good places also I've even worked back farther in river past wooded bridge back into what a call the SWAPS.

      I also have a north facing cabin at the bottom of the hill and I have the Weboost as well.  without it I just barely have reception and with it mounted to the outside of the cabin I can get enough reception for calla and texts (2-3 bars) and slow internet. I plan on mounting it in a tree this spring and should get better reception yet. I paid $399 at best buy for mine about a year ago.

      cg2, Welcome to the forum.   You may try looking at the DNR Lake finder site to look up some of the lakes in your new area for their test results.  Good luck.

      Hello all,   I am new to the area and don't know where to begin fishing. I'm looking for a lake around Mankato that has walleye / crappies in it. I would like to make it out a few times this fall yet and then hit the ice hard. Any advice on what lakes to start with? There's so many that I don't know how to choose which one to go to.

      Gonna try and get out for a bit over the weekend and hit some shore spots. Will post a report if they bite.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them

      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.
