Forest lake bass help

9 posts in this topic

I am fishing on Forest lake next week with some friends. I have never fished the lake before and will probably never have the opprotunity to fish it again. I am going up on sunday morning and would appreciate any tips any of you would be willing to share. I'm not looking for anyone's hot spots, but I would like to be able to catch some fish.

I hate to agree.. But the Chisago Lakes area isnt all that far away from F.L. and the fishing is much more consistent. I have a tournament on Forest on Wed.. and I am not looking forward to it.. 8-)

I heard yesterday that FL was just plain dead, thinking with all the good water around there why beat yourself up. Chisago has so many options.

And Big Marine is only a few miles away. Or you could try fishing closer to home, I hear Iowa has some monsters.

Your other option would be to forget the bass and chase muskies. . I was out there again last night and the muskies were going crazy..

Deitz, don't tease with the muskie talk like that! We have 4 days to wait it out!

Fished Forest on Sat in the wind, found fish on some docks. Such a shallow lake in most dock areas, you really need to approach a dock well.

Pulled a few fish off the reed flat on #1. Mostly smaller males. Couple larger, or I should say longer fish, but no girth to them.

To echo the points above, we loaded up and went off to another small lake in the area. Deitz may have an idea of which one! Did well there.
