When you stay at Northwind Lodge, you re probably going to go fishing for our great bass, northerns and sunfish in Jasper Lake. It’s not unusual to catch 4-5 lb. small mouth bass and 5-6 lb. large mouths. What can really make the day exciting is catching sunnies and having the northerns tear them off before they get into the boat. They usually become pretty active in early June and sometimes the northerns can be ferocious and huge.
Jasper Lake is noted for it’s big weed beds and our fish love to hang our in them. Everybody in in there along with the occasional big walleye cruising under cover. But, some of our biggest fish have been landed in the shalllows using top water lures. When the northern pike are hitting top water and bass spinners, it’s all you can do to NOT be fighting a fish. The big ones are particularly hard on your equipment. Lures aren’t cheap so we stock for sale a Finesse Leader that is a 30 lb, super fine leader that won’t chase away the other fish in the lake but gives you a greatly improved chance of landing the northern pike of a lifetime as well.
