Largemouth anyone?

Recommended Posts

Anybody know where the Largemouth are. I found them last year in an area up in the reeds. A ton of fish in a small area. One that was 5.6lbs. I was there on Friday and Saturday and didn't catch one. I looked in the deeper water near the reeds in some cabbage and just got bit off. Anybody know what they are relating to these days. Any help would be grealty appreciated.

thank you.

ok......either nobody wants to give up any info, or nobody knows. I have two sweet smallie spots that are unmarked and loaded with fish. I'll trade those spots if anybody has any largemouth info.

I tried a similiar post several months ago after hearing rumors about excellent Lg. here. The only responces I got were that the rumors are true, but that they are only in a few area's with a small overall population, catch and release was emphasized. I think it's needles in a haystack where you may get lucky from time to time like you did last year. I will be fishing a Bass Tourny out there on Sat. July 6th. I'll let you know how it goes, maybe U'll be there. I'll be the passenger in a Triton TR-19. That 21" Smallie requirement is quite the hurdle. I've found Lrgees both times prefishing but they tended to be under 15." Our plan will probably be to try and fill a limit with Largemouth then go for the high bar. I have no clue how this one will turn out but I suspect that if I can do as well as I did pre-fishing, I will at least have a limit (5 fish). I suspect limits may be hard to come by, but I may be wrong. I am excited to see how it all pans out. Hopefully, my team will catch something other than half starved walleye's, hammer handles, or giant muskies.

The tournament turned out to be a big dissappointment. I thought my water had a great shot at winning but we just didn't put up the kind of lbs needed, Our bad was a low 10lb. Scott Bonnema and Paul Neumann won with a 17lb bag. I am not sure where or what type of fishing. We fished reads/bulrushes/weeds combo in a southern bay. Almost everyone bagged a limit (5 fish). We probably caught 14-16 fish total, but we missed quite a few and I fear that was one of our main downfalls. Personally, I am not sure if I recommend this lake for Lg. mouth. The avg. size seems to be around 14" and it's fairly tough fishing in the thickening cover. I'd reccommend targeting the big smallies. No one brought a 21" smallie to the scales. For the results go to mnfom.com. (although they had not posted results as of 7/11). One good point is that they seem to be aggressive and like top water.

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
