I've been reading alot about the huge bluegills biting on Bass Lake outside of Cohasset. I've only fished it open water but i bet Otter knows something about it

I lived on Bass Lake by Cohasset for about a year. Stayed in a guest house of sorts. I didn't have a boat at that time, so I had to fish from shore. I never caught a sunnie or crappie on the lake, but I did catch some awefully nice sized perch, huge rock bass, and my first 29"+ walleye during the open water season. It's got some jumbo size fish in that lake. If ya go there, read up on the regs for that lake. If I remember, I think there is a 5-fish limit on the 'gills, but I'm not positive about that. Other good lakes that guys would talk about up there include Winnie (to be expected), Pokegama, Splithand (I think that's the name), and Bowstring was always popular for crappies. TO will know A LOT MORE than I do though.

Good luck and have fun!

Yeah there is a 5 fish limit on sunnies. And there are alot of big eyes in there. I vacationed there for 3 years and learned only after those 3 years from a guy about how too fish the lake. They catch a ton of 25"+ fish out of there. We always caught alot of decent perch and caught alot of northerns. We did alright on walleyes, eater size, not the big ones.

If it's action you're looking for, there are some great lakes north of Grand Rapids on Hwy 38 that are darn tough to beat. Take your pick. There are too many to name here.

Bass Lake can be good with some searching. Check out the regs before heading out there though. Hill Lake in Hill City can be good as well.

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
