Lake Minnetonka (MN)
Throwing swim jigs around inside Weedlines will produce great numbers of largemouth bass. The bass are coming off the spawn and are feeding up on there way out to summer haunts. Look for changes in the inside weedline like points, turns and thicker clumps of weeds for the best action.
Horseshoe Lake (MN)
We were able to pickup a few decent fish by burning swim jigs through the grass
Gladstone Lake (MN)
Fished this lake on 7/13/22. Caught several bass on the outside edge of the weedline with swim jigs. Also caught several up shallow under docks using a wacky rigged senko.
Goose Lake (MN)
Had a Wednesday night tourney on Goose and caught around 25 Largemouth and another 10 Northern in the span of 3 1/2hours. I spent half of my time skipping wacky rigged Junebug colored Yum Dingers under docks on the Daiwa Rebellion ML spinning rod. What an amazing rod for the money, I'd put it up against much higher priced rods, maybe my favorite spinning rod in my lineup. The other half of the time I was throwing a 6th sense divine swim jig, bluegill color with either a Keitech swimbait or a Strike King Rage Craw as a trailer. I would throw the swim jigs into the reeds and then parallel to the lillypads between the docks before I got back into dock skipping range. The 6th sense swim jig is fantastic at coming through vegetation clean and has a really stout hook to rip through as well. I fish it straight braid when going through the reeds but will add in a fluro leader if fishing open water.
Rush Lake (MN)
Sunyu Vang reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Swim Jigs technique and Keitech Fat Swing Impact 3.8" on Rush Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Fish cruising in 6-8ft of submerged vegetation. Even with dirty water, white seemed to trigger more and better bites. Frogs over shallow water (2-3ft) also triggered strikes."
Rush Lake (MN)
Jason Kushlan reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Swim Jigs technique and Keitech Fat Swing Impact 3.8" on Rush Lake. Additional comments from this report: "5/26/2022 water temp 64-66. Fish we’re shallow 1-3’ relating to hard cover there was a mix of pre spawn fish that had just pulled up spawners and post spawn fish. Found a few fish around docks in a small shallow cove adjacent to the main lake, however then most productive bite was in the sporadic lily pads that were beginning to emerge targeting the large heavy roots. By far the most effective technique for me was slow rolling a 6th sense bluegill color swim jig with a 3.8” kitech fat impact swing in bluegill flash. "
Lake of the Isles (MN)
Michael Rekas reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Swim Jigs technique and Strike King Rage Swimmer on Lake of the Isles. Additional comments from this report: "Fishing emergent pad stems has been a great way to catch good numbers. Bites have come either paralleling the outside stems or casting into them, but keeping your swim jig in the middle of the water column is key. The only real pattern with this bite has been the sun. The higher, warmer sun later in the morning and early afternoon has seemed to create a more consistent bite as these fish start to pull up into warmer, shallower water with the sun. "
Centerville Lake (MN)
Nathan14 reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Swim Jigs technique and Strike King Rage Swimmer on Centerville Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Caught most of the fish on the north end of the lake doing this, lots of matted grass. Probably could of used braid and heavy action rod but this was my combo for the day."
Schutz Lake (MN)
Sean Richard reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Swim Jigs technique and Strike King Rage Swimmer on Schutz Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Caught my new PB - a 6.17lber - in 6’ of water between some pads and a nice drop off."
