Anyone catching any in the Metro?

It's cold, the float boat's been broken down for the season and most, if not all, of the weeds are gone or brown. I've been hitting shore spots in the relatively small lakes around Eagan/Mendota Hts. My last bass was a nice 3 pounder, but that was about 3 weeks ago. Any tips, or is just time to pack it all up ‘till 5/23/09?

These next couple weeks would be a good time to be out fishing for bass from shore. The water is dipping into low to mid 40's. Once the sun gets high the shallows will start warming up pretty quickly. The bass will also move shallow and start feeding on sunfish and crayfish. It is one of the best times of years to catch a true lunker. I would probably throw a senko weightless. If the fish are a little more active a slow rolled spinnerbait would get the nod.


I would avoid the dead grass and look for more sandy or rocky areas. The shallow hard bottom areas will warm up the fastest when the sun gets high.


Good Luck!

Thanks for the info, Stick'em... there are a few good sandy/rocky spots in my area that I'll have to check out over the next while. since I don't have any Senko, I'll have to try throwing some of the Berkley PowerBait worms I have. I may try the wacky rig method shown here:

a wacky rig will also do the trick. Maybe even better than a texas rigged senko. Good call. I decided I'm leaving the Ranger Z at home tomorrow and I'm going for some shoreline smallies myself. I'll give a report when I get back!

That's good news. I'll keep at it. I'm throwing buzzbaits and weightless flukes.

Sorry guys...The fishing from shore has been great. Lots of numbers and a handful of good ones a day.

Although I have been out shore fishing a few times this month, I still haven't put my boat away. I can't ever get myself to do it until the ramp freezes! But either the way the smallies and the largies are biting in the shallows.
