Hey all went out last weekend out of Rosehill Resort. Caught a nice largemoouth on a tip-up, 20" between 7 1/2 - 80 lbs (closer to 7 1/2 from my guess) Let him go to go back and make more puppies, but I put pictures up when I figure out how to. And I will also make a replica.

[Here is podunks bass, nice fish sir!]


Take care all

good fishin'

7 1/2 to 80lbs! WOW wink.gifCatching those through the ice is a blast. I am going to fish some christmas trees and catch some bass jigging this weekend.

podunk- Feel free to e-mail me the picture and I will try to put it in the post for you.

Chisago Lake chain is a very good bass lake with plenty of very good sized bass, congrats on the great catch. Chisago lake is a catch and release lake only so a replica will be a great memory of this event for you. Not to burst your bubble, and I dont mean to disrespect in any way, but a 20" bass will not be as heavy as you think it is. Most 20" bass this time of the year will be about 4.5 Lbs... I fish chisago a ton, more than any other lake in the state, my largest out of there is 6.6 and was 22.5"... and that was in the fall when they were on the feed bag.

I agree with Deitz - that bass would have to have some incredible genetics to reach 7 let alone 8 lbs at 20 inches. I've caught two 21" smallies - one of them through the ice that I guessed around 5 1/2 LBS. But anything's possible - I'd love to see some pics of that hog nonetheless!

I never have done actual measurements and I thought you just measure till the "tail" is done and not the fin but, since you do, you can add on a couple, but as far as the scale, it was my grandfather's spring action and it could be off, but I will email the pics to deitz ( I believe that is who it was and then it can get posted.

Take care all

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick
