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.

    • Interesting. I have used it in the past and have better results with nutty butter. SOn in law shot doezilla last week and the fat was unbelievable on her. I saved a few nice chunks and will put it out to see what happens. 
    • yep. first cut them off with the meat saw. Then cut again with hack saw. Then a little bit of filing. Takes a while but no mess.well, not much anyway. lol 
    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
