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

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
