Recommended Posts

Fished a metro lake with fellow FM member Ham today.. Had a very fun day. Weed line in the lake we fished was about 10-12 feet.. we found schools of fish in 14-18... caught them on drop-shots and Jig-Pigs.. The fish should have been in these locations about 3 weeks ago, but have not been there yet in good numbers, but its really starting to happen now. Find the hard bottom locations out on weed edges or beyond, Good luck!

oh yeah! I've just been back in MN fishing lakes for bass in the last week and a half and my first few trips were not so good to say the least. But now I've been finding fish schooled up out deep the last 5 days and its been a ton of fun. Number of doubles and back to back to back fish between my fishing partners and I. fun stuff...except I keep losing the big guys. 1/8oz jigworms and texas rigged worms have caught the most for me. Also a nice one on a brush hog, and lost a pig bass on a dropshot rig this morning after it gave a big bass head shake. Been fishing deepweedlines in about 11-14fow.

Phone tag, you're it. smile What is the water temps where you were? Was there an algea bloom yet? As I mentioned in my message, I searched deep 2 weeks ago on the lake I'm heading to, and they just weren't there in numbers, and especially in size. Just wondering if the last week of weather is gonna push them out a little further.

I don't think we're far enough in summer for a front to positively affect the fish. Or are we? We have one coming in on Sat and my tourney is on Monday. Just wondering it it will help, or delay.

water temp where i fished this past weekend was 73F horrible algea bloom and I had the worst day of bass fishing all year. Sure we caught over 30 fish maybe 40 but nothing big at all.

Deep indeed! School is back in session... well at least it seems as if the "schools" are back on the outside weedline smile Been finding a lot of fish stacking up on the outside line. This is where the fun really begins! wink

I worked a small and deeper west metro milfoil lake yesterday. Pretty darn easy pattern really, they weren't in the shallow stuff, so the next step out was the defined weed-milfoil edge at 6-12 fow. As a somewhat "novice" bass angler, I like to progress thru the water column and rule things out, going shallow to deeper, a.k.a. easier to more complex.

I was using a J'n'P and found the bass there in the mid-range, and mid-day amidst the jet-skis and water skiers and sunny conditions no less. I ended up with 20+ fish, 10 fish I measured from 17 inches up with the biggest at 19.5 inches. The bigger fish did come more from the outside, so I did see the deeper pattern coming into play. The shallower I went the smaller the bass, and the more Zoom chunk tails I lost, likely from aggressive panfish.

Equip: Stanley Rattlin' Flat Eye Jigs 3/16oz (I like the slow fall of a lighter jig) with Zoom Chunks and Super Chunks. Citica 200D on a 6'8" St Croix Avid M X-Fast action, 30lb Power Pro.

Hope that helps!

I got on some deeper fish this evening too. Using jigs and texas rigged creature baits. All the fish I got we nice ones that were nice and chunky.

Fluker,

On Monday I was out before a big storm blew though and we caught them pretty good. It was the best I had done so far this year in terms of bigger fish and I think the front had something to do with the better bite. I was with two other buddies too that were catching some nice ones.

Its funny seeing this thread after a friend and I nailed the fish pretty good yesterday on the inside weedline with plastic frogs. We casted the frogs to shore and fished them about five feet to the inside weedline (about 1' of water) where the fish were waiting to smash them. Caught lots of fish biggest going 5lb 4oz.

We did try deep later in the day and picked off a few nice ones on cranks and 10"worms.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
