Anyone fish Nettle Lake yet this year? Was wondering if the bass are hitting and on what?
Usually I do pretty good for the bass and crappie. The crappie population is pretty good if you hit it right. There are a lot of small crappies in there, but usually I catch between 30-50 crappies (7-10 inches) everytime I go out there (usually 3-4 times a year during the spring). There are some big crappies if you hit them exactly right. They are a little harder to find though. Just fish the lilly pads for the crappies and you do pretty good.Dont really know anything about this lake but would like to hear about the bass and crappie population. How big is this lake?
Good luck, we got a cottage there and never catch nothing. Crappie hit good once a year and that is about it. I don't even take my pole to waist my time. Unless I have a appointment at Lake la su ann "now that is fishing".
I know exactly where you are. Very nice lake to have a cottage on. Very quit and peaceful lake.I should try it with a pole. Here all this time I was trying to catch them in my mouth. The cottage is on the east side of the lake, near the lilly pads east of the campgrounds on the point. The last circle shaped cutout as you are headed back to the North cove.
I was there Sunday, and there was someone tubing behind a pontoon boat. There were a few speed boats that came out. If they are doing this in 55 degree water, I can only imagine how it gets during the summer.
Fishing was a lot better this past weekend with the warmer water.
Here's the link to the latest report. It has photos and lures listed.What were you using this weekend there? I have a little club tournament there on Sunday, only 3 boats and any help would be greatly appreciated.
We caught several keepers along the campground side. Our biggest fish came along the North end on the drop off. I imagine they are up in the pads now.Were you fishing the North Cove? Were you fishing timber or the lily pads? What was the most consisted bite?
