Largemouth bass are available in fishable numbers, although, many anglers do not target them. Walleye, pike, muskie, perch and even smallmouth bass usually are higher up on most angler’s priority lists, so the largemouth bass have held their own in this lake as a secondary species of fish. Target the vegetation in the bays and don’t be afraid to fish shallow. Largemouth bass are smart and they know to survive, they need to stay away from the pike and muskie. However, largemouth bass do like to spend time in a lot of the areas that pike will be found, so make sure you are using heavier leaders while targeting largemouth bass here. There are some quality fish in this lake too with some 4 to 5 pound bass caught every year.
