I just got back from Florida and fished my first Large Mouth Bass. Where are good places in MN to fish for large mouth come season?

Thankyou,

What area of MN are you planning on fishing the most?

How did you do down in FL?

Fishing in Florida was great, I was there to play golf, but the Bass were there for the picking. On off days or days when the golf was the last thing I wanted to think about, 2lb large mouth in the morning and around sundown gave you atleast a couple hours of fishing fun per day in which you couldn't rebait the hook fast enough. 8lbs bass and a 2.5lb perch were the prizes.

Well, I gotta say that Minnetonka is considered one of the best bucketmouth fisheries in the country. Problem is that it is getting so built up and populated, it makes it a pain to fish. Still, you can catch some good bass on that lake. I personally have caught my biggest on there.

Hey Golf Guy,

Welcome to the forum.

I am partial to Gull Lake up by Brainerd. Lots of good bass action up there. About 2 hrs from Minneapolis, though.

There are all sorts of small lakes in the metro area that have hefty bass in them. Problem is that a lot of guys aren't going to give that information out. I have seen lakes smaller then a hundred acres dish up 5 and 6 pound fish. A lot of these lakes aren't accessable to boats and some only allow canoes. Thats all you can do is keep your eye on the posts here to pick up what you may. You'd be suprised at all the info here that gets bantered about.

Hey Golf Dude--

Just my 2 cents worth--but it is to immediately go buy a Minnesota Atlas and Gazateer. It is a highly detailed set of maps laid out in a big book/magazine type format. Carries topo maps of the entire state. The Minnesota edition has 95 pages laid out in easy to read grids. Cost about $20.00 at the local bookstore. It will show you virtually every boat launch and piece of water in the state. If you are serious about catching lots of and bigger bass my experience has been to use the places with the worst boat launches--or better yet NO LAUNCHES! Take a 15 foot aluminum boat and a small detachable outboard motor (one you can physically carry) and put it in the back of the truck and carry it to the water. I have done this countless times and fished a lake totally to myself. In northern Wisconsin (within 100 miles of Twin Cities) and boated over 100 largemouth a day on many occasions. If you see some potential waters on the map use the DNR site to check what species are there. But most any lake that has good shallow weed cover and is deep enough to avoid winterkill will hold largemouth in Minnesota. The better known and larger waters can be found easily--there are several books out on fishing the lakes in the immediate twin cities area that might help on the learning curve as well. Hope that gives you a few ideas to start you on the way. Good luck on your adventures!

You said 2.5 lb. perch--you mean speckled perch, which is what crappies are referred to down here? There are no yellow perch in Florida, unless some northerner somehow kept a few alive and trucked them down here (which is rumored to happen with walleye from time to time).

Where were you fishing in Fla.? Anywhere in particular, or just canals/water hazards on golf courses, etc.?
