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

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
