Eyehunter Minnewaska has some very nice fish in the lake, lots of nice fish last Fall same size range Corey is talking about. It sounds like you need to learn how to locate those fish. Sounds like you had a great day Corey, a few lakes around Morris have been giving up some nice fish in between the constant weather changes.

Cory,

Your posts on Minnewaska have been very informative for the people who really read into them.

BTW, I met you at the ramp the other morning and we were talking about exactly what you posted above regarding the change of location of walleyes in the lake. The bass guys throwing hard baits know exactly what you are talking about.

Bassman,

You need to get down to Waska. It can take a little while to figure out, but it is loaded with 3-4lb. largemouth and smallmouth.

It is not hard to catch bass on waska right now. Anything will work. I was out on Friday for the first time in the morning on the Starbuck end. Went to Priest Point and caught a few small eyes on fatheads then went to the south shoreline and worked a jig off the bottom in about 14' of water and nailed a 19 1/2". Had to leave and did not make it out the rest of the weekend. I think I caught 50 bass in the 4 hours I was out and I was fishing for eyes.

Corey

Where did you catch all the nice eyes? If you want to share but not post it here you can email me at pjcodner@yahoo.com . Always looking for good spots to fish and to take my two young boys out fishing.

when your talking loaded with 3-4 lb fish, is it hard to find these fish?

Only fished minnewaska twice. Once just kind of screwing around and then last sunday spent about 3 hours chasing smallies. Only caught 8 but 3 were between 18 and 19 inches. Fish were really scattered where i was fishing just catching one here and one there, not really that grouped up. Just wondering how the smallie bite is typically, more numbers or size or both. Also, generally, what is the preferred approach for largemouth, deep, shallow, or in between; weedlines, pencil reeds, docks, rocks, flats, etc. Not looking for specific spots, just a general idea to help get me started.

Are most of the bigger bass deeper? I was out there memorial weekend in the tsunami waves and only caught little ones. What lures? And where, the points and boulders?

We fished smallies on sunday and got them in 4-7 fow. Gravel/Rock areas/transitions. Also saw quite a few of them just cruising the bottom.

eye10,

I WAS feeling you're frustration, but then you go and say the lake's full of 3-5# bass and inviting everyone to come up and EAT them and that there taking over the lake. Good thing waska isn't gonna be your "home" lake any more. BTW, 1-2# LM, yes, but 3-5#??? At least Corey's info is accurate, although I do admit I wish everyone didn't have to know about it. Still gotta be able to catch em, just don't enjoy it as much with the added # of boats. Yes, Selfishness is my middle name. lol. I'm workin on it!

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.
    • ANYFISH2
      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams.
