Like bassNSpear, I am a bit cornfused.

If you could narrow down your question a little, I'm sure someone on the board will help you out.

If your just looking for a good place to fish. I really can think of many "bad" bass lakes. All the Lakes in the Chisago Lakes area are gems in my mind.

Here's one good tip.

don't get stuck in one pattern and expect to make it pay off

example. I'm a crank guy, so I like plenty of open water. I avoid thick weeds. I'm missing out on some good fish. My partner is a weed guy, he insists on thick shallow weeds.

there's a little compromise here, put the boat where one side is weed the other side is wide open.

Depends on the type of lake you're fishing. Most big bass I catch this time of year come over flats at about 7 ft with deeper water nearby as well as some sort of weeds nearby (usually bullrushes). I fish in an area where most of the lakes are pretty shallow though and there aren't many rocks to speak of, so vegetation is what they relate to.

    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
