Bass in Como?

7 posts in this topic

Hello everybody,

I am new to this sight so this is my first post. I live in St. Paul and I just moved here in october. I live right by Como lake and have been fishing it alot up until it was impossible because of whatever weed growth is over taking the lake. I was just wondering if anybody has ever heard or actually caught a bass out of there.

Bass fishing was superb in como, 3lbs was a common catch................................................... that was 19yrs ago. Haven't fish it ever since the water went from gin clear then to carp brown now. I still wonder if there's any bass still in there.

If you do a search on this site for lake como, you will find a discussion in the metro forum about why there are no bass left in there. I live a couple blocks away and have fished there a lot with no luck for bass. You will have much better luck on the lakes a couple miles away, Owasso, Johanna, Phalen, and Gervais.. You just need to get out there and search some.

If you ever see a guy on Como in a tiny red sit-on-top kayak.. thats me!

I'd be sketchy of the bucket brigade... But since your in the area I might bring my boat into town and if you wanna target some local bass lets go for it.

oh btw... welcome to FM wink

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
