Garrsion Smallies

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hay guy's I need some help here..I fished the pond many times this year and have pick up so many fish I could never begine to tell..Well any way I fish out of the garrsion area all the time and I have never pick up and small mouth and I'm trying to find out if there is any half decent spots to pick up a few.The deal is that my wife loves to fish for bass and I'm not to big on bass fishing so I figure it might be possible to kill two birds with one stone if you know what I mean,any help would be great..Thanks.

Try the point just south of the public access in garrison that wraps around into St. Albans Bay. Last week we we trolling for walleyes there with shad raps and caught 7 smallies. Nice littlle bonus on top of the 10 + walleyes we got there.

I personally do not have much smallie expirence(yet)on Milly. A buddie of mine caught a 21 1/2" smallie on opening weekend on the north-end sand by Wealthwood.

Vikes,

You know.....funny thing about it....I would say "No". Is that selfish, or what?

I normally share a lot of info on this site, but just this once, I'd like to keep something secret. However, I did choose to tell you and you can certainly make your own decisions about what to do with that information.

I know you'll do the right thing. wink.gif

Huskmin-

I was being sarcastic and I agree. Thanks for the heads up on that spot. I am on vacation all week and my old man is dying to try that spot. Wallys and smallies all week long.

Anyway, I love to share most of my spots, but not all of them. Now I OWE you one of my secret spots, dont I?

Good fishing to all!

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?

      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).

      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️
