MOON PHASE
First Quarter

Looking for a change of scenery, went and tried Bass Lake today. I don't think I was ever here. Lots of small largemouths in the shallows. I caught one in maybe 22 feet of water, also played with what was clearly a trout out real deep for probably 10 minutes with a dropshot. up and down, he followed as the kayak drifted, just wouldnt commit. I did get to play with the new fish finder though, that was the main reason I was out there today. Found a rock pile in 34' of water that looked promising but I didnt mark any fish on it or have anything show interest while fishing it. Nintendo fishing is fun!

Just bought a h-bird Ice-45 and wanted to try it out on Friday. Heading south from Waupaca; Shadow had a mess of people, moved on to Gooseneck, but there were a halk-dozen people there too. Surpising with the temps and wind. Nobody on Bass, so I thought I'd give it a try. Fished from 6' out to 20', just jigging grubs off the bottom. Marked fish higher up. Messed with them and ended up catching 3 trout with one break-off. All caught were smaller and released, still fun on a cold day. I was happy with the performance of the flasher, but I've got a lot to learn yet. BFG

I posted a nearly identical question on the Spencer Lake page.

My family just bought a place up by Bass Lake and Spencer Lake, and I am hoping to get some info for my boy. I'm a casual fisherman. I'm not too serious about it, but my eight year old loves to get out.

When we fish the river near our house, the whole town knows he caught a fish. I'd love to get him out on one of the little lakes there and see him go wild. I know of Bailey, Gooseneck, McLean, McAllistar, Spencer, and Bass Lakes. I would appreciate any info on any of these lakes.

It would be cool to see him hook into a big Bass or Trout... I think the whole county would hear about it Big Smile

I have fished this lake before. It is alright for gills and bass. Really deep for being such a small lake. Then again it is part of the chain. Never really ice fished it. Is there any way to get out here without falling through a spring. That thing is loaded with springs. Marsh Rat
