Where Are Bass?
The smallmouth bass in the back lake are fat and sassy! You
can expect to catch bass over 3 pounds. Fish the rocky islands and the pads. Fish early and late in the day with floating lures. As the sun climbs, switch to deeper presentations,
paying special attention to the shallow rock ridges and humps that are away from land a bit. The bass fishing in the back lake is strictly catch and release. Note that this lake also contains nice walleyes!
Smallmouth bass fishing in the main lake has perked up recently as well, with fish over 8 pounds caught in the last couple years. Be sure to check out larger rock flats and just wait for the bass to rocket up from the depths!
What Should I Bring for Bass Fishing?
What About Bass Fishing Rods and Reels?
Light action rods that are about 6′ long will work best.
Some ardent fishermen will use ultralight tackle but be prepared for a battle!
A reel with a smooth drag will be your best friend when the big bass try to dive behind rocks and sunken trees.
