Well I tried it out last night, even under ominous skies the bass still bit farily well. Did very well on Watermelon seed chartruese palstics. Texas and carolina rig. Kind of a funny bite. Fish SLOW!!!

Hellabass,

You are a warrior if you were willing to fish in last night's wind/hurricane.

It really wasn't that bad out... Besides, NSC has plenty of protected areas no matter the wind.

Any word on how all this rain had affected the bass or how the bite was this past weekend?

I fished a Chisago area lake (not trying to be secretive, just speaking in general) on Sunday for bass and did fairly well. Two things I observed: One, many areas of muddy (Mississippi colored) water. You don't usually see that in lakes unless they're getting a ton of runoff. Two, green and still fairly crisp pickle grass (curlyleaf cabbage). I usually rejoice when that stuff dies and disappears because it's not usually crisp and fishable. But, right now it is and the fish are digging it.

I'm fishing a club tournament on this unspecified Chisago area lake on Sunday, so I'd prefer for the mud to dissipate and the pickle grass stay like it was this past Sunday. And, for it to be cloudy and... Well, why not ask for everything.

Hella,

Why do you have a club event this weekend on Big Marine? No, I wasn't on Big M.

The fish I caught, much to my irritation, were predominantly shallow. Slop fish, inside weedline fish, fish that I know are going to bail on me. Well, the slop fish might stay, but I know the inside weedline dudes will pull up stakes. Fortunately, I found enough weedline (a pickle grass weedline which could disappear) fish to give me alternatives.

But, it's probably better to avoid all this analysis and fish by instinct. That's why I usually don't prefish June tournaments on lakes I know. The lakes change too much this time of year.

Bornofice,

You don't consider Big Marine a Chisago Are lake do you? What were they biting on?

No tourney on BM, it was the only one in the area i knew of this weekend. I had a tuesday nighter on NSC last night. Took 2nd with 12#, flippin' heavy cover with the high water. It was won on Scum Frogs in the pads, 13+#.

Good luck with your toruney this weekend!

      Fished for a few hours this afternoon after the rain went through and the wind died down a bit. Tried a good dozen places in between black bay and the Brule and only got around 10 fish for the effort. The water was still pretty much ice cold at a cool 65 degrees in the main lake. We checked a few off shore reefs and saw zero signs of life on the ones we checked. The places we did get a few fish was were there was a rock to mud transition near shore on points. All in all another tough outing for us and on a side note, on the way in we pulled cranks in shallow water and the May flys were thick on the surface on the wind blown side.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Any tips on smallies up there? First time coming up.

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!
