Good bass action


Recommended Posts

Mink and Somers was very good to us tonight. Went out from 6:30 to 8:30 and landed 16 fish myself and my buddy landed 9. The topwaters were working on the north side of the island. Biggest was 19" with most in the 15"-17". We caught two fish with lures in thier mouths. One had a red daichi hook and the other had a small sunfish jig. First time I have ever had that happen. I did have one casuality and that was the digital camera. I'm glad it was the cheap one. I did get a few shots on the disposable so when the roll is filled I will post them.

My brother was on Clearwater and he said the action was also very good. He landed around a dozen nice bass on a pig and jig working the reed lines. He did however lose a few to the toothy critters. I am going to try and make it out there in a few days and try to drop shot a little. I don't have much expierence doing it so it's time to learn!

I love bass thumb!!

The fall bite has been outstanding for the topwaters. I have to get my pics devolped so I can post a pic of one I got that was a little over 22" and had a 17" girth. It had a bullhead body sticking out of its gullett. I was scum frogging over some pads on one of those windy days in a back bay and must have made it mad enough that it wanted to kill that frog. My heaviest to date and I was shaking like a leaf. Also pig farmer if you are from the maple lake area I have been getting some decent fish from indian, granite, and ramsey on the topwaters also. By the way make sure you tell your daughter not to give them all sore mouths so I can have some fun too smile.gif

Nope actually just a little east of Clearwater. I think you should be able to catch crappies, sunnies, some bass, and maybe a toothy critter or too in Grass. In the spring we hasve done excellent on crappies.

I live just north of town by ney park. I have been to silver creek a few times smile.gif I am probably 2-3 miles from you. Probably been by your house thousand of times. I have lived in the area for 15 years.


The weeds on mink should be all good. After the spring time it just usually the algae bloom you have to woory about.

Hi,
So far I've made 2 posts on this subject but for some reason they have been deleted. I just want to say that I really like fishing these two lakes and I don't think a lot of people know how good it is for bass, until now!

The launch at mink has been full of big boats for years. What makes you think people dont know about them? I live on Mink and its hard to get a spot by 9 am on a weekend. Dont worry the regs wont allow for a tournament, plus the launch only holds what ten boats. Anyone interested in fishing these lakes let me know Ill show you around.
respectfully
Mike
Theres four lake that I know of that have better bass then Mink within 10 miles. All these lakes are pretty consistent.

Have to agree with you Fenwick. There are at least 5 better bass lakes within 10 minutes of Mink. What makes mink nice is that it is a catch and release lake mainly. Plus when that lake gets green alot of people don't want to fish it. Now lets just hope the carp don't come back any heavier. I have seen more this year than any. But some of them have been big. 10-15 pounds. So they have been in there for a few years.

Hey everyone,
I'm sorry about the post. I didn't mean to get anyone upset. (It's been a rough week and I'm sorry to take it out on anyone!)
I guess it's because I've seen some winter panfish lakes get stormed by hot bite reports and it's kind of scary.
I know there are many great bass lakes around and I do appreciate the regulations on Mink and Sommers.
My apologies to you guys!
Fenwick: You're absolutely right. I'll take you up on the offer to show me around!
Thanks,
Ole

Hey Panolo,
Is Cedar Lake a good Bass lake to fish? Someone told me it was.
Send me an email if you'd like. I'd like to compare notes on a few lakes in Wright County.
Thanks,

I fished bass quite a bit out on Cedar this past summer. I was just out there Friday as a matter of fact. Despite the bad luck I had on the lake then, bass fishing on Cedar is good for me. I tried everything that day, form spinners and buzz baits to crankbaits and jigs. Nothing...I think the weather had something to do with that. The size of the fish are about average for this area of the state. At least thats what I have found. I havent caught anything over 19 inches out there all summer. I'm going out to Waverly thursday or friday of this week. I know there are some big bass in there to be had with my largest being 21 inches. According to one of the lake side residents "there is a state record bass in that lake." He was one of them old timers that said he has seen it while he is spearing in the winter. Whether this is true or not I dont know. But one day I caught a 17", two 18's" and a 20" along with more that were smaller but still a nice size all in one night. I couldnt believe it...it was unreal. This alone is enough reason for me to give it another try this fall.

Is anybody having any luck with jigs yet or have we all swithed to crankbait mode?

Good luck all to all the fall Fishermen.

I've been in crankbait mode and spinnerbait mode. I also have had good luck with Texas rigged 10" Berkeley power worms with a 1/16th Florida screw on weight.
I haven't had a lot of luck this summer with spinnerbaits until now. They seem to be chomping at the bit (or bite as it were). Thank God for hunting season. The lakes are quiet but the fish are hungry.

How is the bite on mink? I was out there a couple weeks ago and had a couple fish on. Last weekend I couldnt find anything. I was wondering also on the island, there looks like a picnic shelter of some sort is on it. Is that what it is and who owns it? Courage center? Thanks

Yep it is the camps. I have had some luck with crainkbaits out deeper. A spinner bait probably wouldn't be a bad idea either.

      I’ve only seen teal one morning on the river.  Absolutely nothing in all the evenings I’ve been out.  Hard to get excited about hunting around home. 😒

      Public Administration in any sphere is a complicated process. In public service, there is a high level of responsibility. Every decision may affect large groups of people. There are many challenging points in Public Administration in public service. For example, public administration servants might face a lack of clarity or conflict regarding goals. Public Administration is difficult when there are numerous parties involved. Public Administration essay in public service should also be as objective as possible. There are voting sessions in various committees that help reach the objectiveness. However, if a suggestion gets 50% of votes among street-level bureaucrats, how should this be interpreted? Is a minor preponderance of votes enough to accept a proposal? The sphere implies a focus on societal needs. Sometimes the needs of the target population differ from the common societal ones. In such cases, public administration specialists need to find a balance between those interests. Bureaucrats at street level need to take into consideration many factors. In some cases, it might be challenging to figure out what to do. It is especially true if the decision regards a long-term perspective. Any public service organization has an established pattern for effective decision-making. Such models might involve many formalities. As a result, the process might be extremely time-consuming. https://proessays.net/essays/category/public-administration Related Resources: https://renkulab.io/gitlab/-/snippets/2871 https://www.ridesharetalks.com/?qa=356716/economics-essay-example https://gitlab.syntra-limburg.be/-/snippets/1240 https://forum.making-stories.com/d/296-government-essay-examples

      The essay for international exams such as SAT, GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and IELTS does not require literary talent, but rather a mastery of the technology of its writing.   Almost any international test for admission to a foreign university contains a section devoted to writing an essay. Is homework market legit? There is a general approach to essay writing for standardized tests, which includes five main steps.   DETERMINING THE TYPE OF ESSAY First, you need to determine what type of essay you are required to write. Standardized tests more often ask you to write a "problem essay," when you need to present an opinion on a given problem, and an "argumentative essay," when you need to analyze the arguments presented against or in defense of a particular point of view.   DETERMINING THE LENGTH OF AN ESSAY The length of the text affects the complexity of the essay, the number of paragraphs. A basic three-paragraph essay consists of 300-500 words. It is referred to as a "short" essay in standardized tests. A "long" essay is a minimum of 500-800 words and consists of five paragraphs.   Each paragraph should contain at least three sentences. It is important to understand that it is not the length of the typed text that is assessed, but the structure and content of the essay.   FORMULATION OF THE MAIN IDEA, THESIS AND ARGUMENTS The main idea is what the essay is about. The thesis is what the author thinks about the main idea of the essay. Arguments are logical statements in support of the author's thesis. Each of these elements should consist of at least one sentence.   If you put these elements in order, you will get an introduction. You can use the wording from the text of the assignment as the main idea.   If the text of the assignment is formulated as a question, in most cases, the thesis should be formulated as an answer to the question posed.   STATEMENT OF THE MAIN BODY OF THE ESSAY In an essay of up to three thousand words, one paragraph each is allocated for the introduction and conclusion. The rest of the essay consists of the main body. For example, in an essay of five paragraphs, the main part should consist of three paragraphs, i.e. one paragraph for each argument.   In a three-paragraph essay, only one paragraph remains to present all three arguments, which makes it even more difficult to write. After a brief outline of the main body, one introductory sentence should be written for each paragraph.     The introductory sentences tell the reader what the paragraph is about. This is followed by arguments that justify the essence of the introductory sentence and examples (a quote or a life case). The introductory sentence, argument, and example together make up one paragraph in the main body.   Since the arguments have already been presented in the introduction, there is no need to use semantic transitions in the main body - all that remains is to set them out in the order in which they are presented in the introduction.   CONCLUSION The conclusion is usually the most difficult part of the essay. The conclusion should include a paraphrase of the thesis in light of what was said in the main body, i.e., an explanation of how the arguments support the thesis put forward, and a final sentence that draws a line under the main idea of the essay.   The clearer and more definite the thesis statement is, the easier it is to write the conclusion. Difficulties in writing the conclusion means that most likely the thesis statement is too unclear. In this case, you can try to rewrite the introduction and then go back to the conclusion.   GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS The main recommendation for writing essays for standardized tests is to quickly sketch out an initial version of the essay. If you run out of time, at least you will have a finished, albeit imperfect, product.   In any case, a finished essay is always graded higher than an unfinished one. If you have some time left, however, you can easily improve the essay with small changes.   Resources: How to write an essay What are essays Essay structure, writing style. What is an essay?

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.
