Many people tend to ignore the largemouth fishing out there. I think it rivals any of the inland lakes for numbers of decent fish.

What pound test were you using for the spinnerbaits? When I moved up to 17lb line, I started keeping more of my spinnerbaits and caught just as many bass.

It is WAY better than inland lakes and I've fished all the top ones in the lower state.

When you combine both species it has to be in the top 5 in the country.

Great report & pics. Caught my fair share of them this weekend too on musky bucktails, could only imagine if I was using something smaller how many I would have caught. Would love to be out on a calm day and use some topwater baits :rolleyes: .

Good fishing! I was checking out the photos and I was like: "hey I know that place (mnb11, mnb12)! I used to live at that duplex just to the right of where the pictures were taken. I fished in all the time in that channel :) Your secret is safe with me :)

they wouldnt really hit topwater , or spinners, we were using alot of different zoom worms and they were hammering them!!!!! didnt even have to set the hook as they did it for us !!!lol what a day it was for sure !!!! right about 10.30 am the bite stopped !!!! the sun was out and hot so i am sure they went deeper or hidden in alot of cover !!!! all i caught on spinners was pike and lost like 5 spinner baits to them darn toothy critters lol

nice! largemouth are so fun to catch, especialy on a spinnerbait or crankbait. i just love the feeling when im reeling that bait in and then, whack! looks like you had a lot of those moments. if you have trouble with line go to sports authority and get your self some 20 pound test 6 lb diameter braid. they have it for cheap (compared to other places) and you'll never even have the thought that your line would break. trust me its worth the 15 dollar investment

I use spiderwire 15lb braided on all my bass rigs. Never had a problem losing fish or line breaking on an occaisional toothed beauty!! A little pricey but well worth it. Plus you will keep a few more baits for the next trip!

Good luck!!

Looks like you had some nice action, way to go!

Yeah, there is some great largemouth fishing to be had here. Great fishing in general, no need to go up north, because (aside from pike size) it's better here.

30lb fluorocarbon or hard mono would just about completely eliminate bite-offs. Big Game mono is dirt cheap and small spools of Big Game and fluoro leader material are available.

One time when pike fishing using 30# and 50# leaders I could have caught 100 smallies if I were going for them, and that was early spring, fishing cranks relatively slow in cool water. I couldn't imagine that would affect the spinnerbait, bucktail, or crank bite much, especially at faster summer speeds, unless the water's really clear, in which case 17# or 20# may be a better compromise.

Yeah, not much of a mohawk, writing as one who grew up on a lot of punk rock back in the day, but far be it from me to dictate how anyone has their hair cut.

It's bad luck to be superstitious.

Any angler who thinks trolling is boring ain't doing it right.

No need to question my sanity. I fish for muskies. That should serve as proof of insanity...
