Because of the rain I got a late start, but I did stay out later in the afternoon than I normally would have if I was out at 6 AM. I kept enough to have a meal and gave away enough for the neighbor lady to feed her kids a meal. When you find the right spots at the right time, it doesn't matter what you use for bait, the Bass hit on anything, Fatheads, worms, Gulp minnows, Gulp worms, leaches, crank baits, swim baits or spinners.


Lots of Large mouth Bass

On May 29th it was 80 degrees by 6 AM, the fishing forecast was lousy, and so was the fishing. Roger and I both caught a few Bass and 2 of them were actually good sized. Roger who won't use leaders for Bass had something bite his 12 Lbs. braided line off, loosing his favorite jig. We got off the lake by about 1PM because of the heat! https://jemstone90.wixsite.com/bigmnfish/copy-of-2017-fish

This report is from last Friday, 5-25-18, 20 Days after the official Ice Out, the water temperature is pushing 70 degrees? What happened to spring fishing? To have to get off the lake by noon because your starting to bake in the sun on the 25th of May is not what I call spring fishing. It is good for the Bass fishing which is just opening today. I struck out on Crappie today but the last time I was out Roger and I filled out! https://jemstone90.wixsite.com/bigmnfish/copy-of-2017-fish

Minnetonka was declared ICE OUT on May 5th about noon, but they were still encountering ice in some of the bays. Black Lake and the other mud holes around have been open for a week or so. Looks like the Bass season will be good once it opens.

Driving by the Spring Park Water Patrol every day I see its only a matter of time. Once the lake looks like it's covered with ice cubes its time to get the boat ready.

Largemouth Bass

Going home from lunch at Maynard's and When I stopped under the narrows bridge I saw it is open which mean it won't be long now!

Thanks for the update.   Which camera do you use?  I have a cheapo black/white one, but am looking for a small portable style to check for fish.   Not sure if i want an aquaview or marcum.  100 buck difference for the 3.5 vs 5".
