Chisago Lake Fishing Report for Largemouth Bass using Swim Jigs in Pre-Spawn (Stumps)
Reported by Kent Mittelstaedt on Nov 27, 2019
On lake Chisago before the largemouth bass spawn, shallow bays with stumps can be great. The bass migrate towards the shallower bays to set up for spawn and use stumps as a stopping point on their way to an eventual spawning bed. These bays have some grass, so a weedless presentation like a swim jig has produced for me. Cover a lot of water and try to make contact with the stumps to trigger a reaction. I like this technique on a 7'+ MH rod with 17lb fluorocarbon line. An Outkast swim jig is hard to beat. 1/4 to 3/8 swim jig with a 4" grub trailer is all you need!
