Wappogasset White Bass

Recommended Posts

My grandpa used to have a cabin on Lake Wappogasset in Amery; it was my favorite place to be. I still have an out of state liscene; altough the only place I got out to this year was Pine lake near Somerset for Northerns. Anyhows.. Wappogasset has a multitude of species including Rock and White Bass. My Grandpa even got a smallie out of there but it was the only one. Lots of medium sized LM bass around 14-15" though. I just find it curious that there are a good number of White Bass in Wappogasset. I caught one which had I known the state record was so small could have considered it a "trophy" fish. It was 18" long and 3lbs. I caught several between 14 and 16 inches out of there too; which I hear from river anglers that fish for them are very big fish. Think a state record could be in there for any interested.... I'm just wondering if someone knows how they got in there if the DNR stocked them or what.

I live in Somerset and i fish pine lake to. A lot of little northerns but if you fish at night you can catch a TON of crappies. most of them are around 10 inches but there are some nice ones its a lot of fun with all the action. I am planning on going up to wappagassett this year a lot because i hear they have a good amount of walleyes. i dont know about the bass but i will probably get out there dec 8

I'd be careful on not getting to anxious to trust the ice on Wappo; it's a big lake and wouldn't freeze over that fast. And defiantly no wheres near the dam. Bear Trap or Twin lakes would likely be safer sooner; and even with the weather this week I'm waiting till next friday to try some ponds around here.

    • Yep mine are back as well other then the Cardinals and Blue Jay's yet.  
    • Hawg go to this site. It will help you id them.  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/    
    • It looks like you were using my cell phone to take those pics. I'm also surprised an old guy like you could stay up that late! Just kidding!
    • Thank you, looks like I have a ton of them and not the goldies, I'm kind of disappointed. There's quite a bit of difference, I must have been fooled by the yellow on the siskins. It's been a while since I had either. I'm still looking for my bird books to identify the others. It seems the older I get the better I get at hiding stuff from myself! Thanks again, Mark
    • not my pic but here is a winter goldie. pretty drab
    • pine siskins. look a lot like winter goldies just smaller
    • Eyeguy, do you have a picture of a winter goldfinch and a pine siskin? I'm not 100% sure I know the difference. Any idea what the birds are I posted about with the colored backs? Those are on the safflower seed heavy, not on the niger at all. I wish I had a lens to take a picture to show you.
    • lots of pine siskins have been moving thru here. 
    • 1.21.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, NW Angle of LOW,

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      We are making ice up here at Sunset Lodge and with fresh snow coming the trails should be in great shape.

      In Minnesota, we are seeing really nice saugers mixed in with walleye in 26-29ft. Rippin raps and rattle baits are calling fish to the house during slower portions of the day. Pink and white remains the favored color combo. Work these baits aggresively as they will attract fish, mellow out as fish appear on electronics, then finesse them with a more subtle presentation to seal the deal.

      Crappies continue to come in from Canada. Electronics are key with a small presentation such as a tungsten jig with a small piece of minnow. Walleye action is hot off points and reefs on flats between 24-28 ft. 

      Until next week!
      Sunset Lodge
