Blue Lake fishing largemouth bass is epic. It’s a small body of water that stays warm all year round from a hot spring, and it is home to some solid sized fish. Here’s all the logistics of what my experience was like out on blue lake fishing largemouth bass. This post includes a map of the spots we caught fish, the best baits we used, and the conditions we were faced with. Hopefully, this post can help cure your wintertime bass blues, and give you a spot to get your bass fishing itch scratched. Enjoy!
Blue Lake Fishing Largemouth Bass
My trip out to blue lake was awesome. I went out there with one of my awesome “Kraken Bass” subscribers, and we had a great time. We caught 8 nice sized largemouth in a morning of fishing. Plus, we had an adventure getting towed out of the mud. It was surprising to me the size of the bass we caught in this little warm spring pond. We just walked the banks, and had a blast on a snowy day in February “Kraken” bass.
Make sure you stay tuned to read the full post to get the skinny on the conditions of the lake, and where we fished. In addition, there were some key things we learned about what types of baits to throw on this body of water included in this report. Plus, there is a video clip of some of the action we caught on film. The goal of this post is to help you on your next adventure, and learn from some of my experiences out on the water. Enjoy!
Blue Lake Fishing Largemouth Bass Conditions
We arrived at Blue Lake on a Friday morning on February 24th at around 9:30 am. We fished until about 2:00 pm in the afternoon, so we had a total of about 4 – 5 hours of solid fishing. Here’s a quick rundown of the fishing conditions for us on our blue lake excursion.
Air Temperature around 40 degrees. Partly Cloudy Skies. Snow fell on us a little bit at one point, along with periods of bright sunshine.
Around 63 degrees. It’s a warm spring!
Crystal Clear. Visibility 20 ft down.
5 – 15 mph. The wind pretty much blew the whole time we were there.
Blue Lake Fishing Largemouth Bass Lures
We tried a few different lures and techniques on Blue Lake fishing for Largemouth bass, but only a few types of baits seemed to work. Here are the three lures and set up’s we used to catch them on this trip.
Keitech Swing Impact Fat
The Keitech Swing Impact Fat caught the most bass for me fishing Blue Lake. I primarily used a Megabass Balance Body Swimbait Head with the Ayu Swimbait. I threw this out on a baitcasting rod and reel set up to cast it out as far as I could from the bank. The key was to let the swimbait fall down deep, and reel it just enough to keep the swimbait ticking the grass and cover along the bottom.
My friend caught all his fish on a Shad Immitation Colored Spinnerbait. The bass out here really seemed to be keying in on the bait fish presentations. It was a good bait to fish with the windy conditions. He let the spinnerbait fall down, and slowly reeled it along waiting for one of those dudes to “Krak” it.
KVD Dream Shot
Throwing a green pumpkin KVD Dream shot on a drop shot rig when things slowed down a bit proved effective. I used a 3/16 oz drop shot weight with a 1/0 straight shank hook. The bottom had a ton of grass, so rigging up the Dream Shot texas style on the straight shank hook helped keep the bait from grabbing the grass.

Blue Lake Fishing Report
For a morning of fishing in February Blue Lake was pretty awesome. When we first arrived the fishing seemed to be the best. We caught our first 5 bass in only about 3 hours. We had to grind it out the rest of the afternoon, but we picked up 3 more. One on the spinnerbait, and two on the drop shot. The weather was really funky. Sunny, Windy, Cloudy, and Snow all in a period of 5 hours. We had the whole place to ourselves. Blue Lake fishing is really remote.
The bass seemed to be laying on the deep weed line edges. We saw a couple up shallow, but the majority of our bites where out deep away from the banks. The water is so clear. Every bite was out at the far end of our casts. The bass acted like pack hunters. My first bass had a school of 3 – 4 others following him. It was a really cool experience. Here’s some pictures of a couple of the nice chunks we caught fishing blue lake.

Blue Lake Fishing Re-cap
In hind sight, we probably should of tried throwing some other moving baits like crankbaits or something. Yet, overall I was really stoked on the trip. The only major bummer was getting stuck in the mud. We were really lucky, because right about when this happened a group of Scuba Diver’s arrived on the scene and politely pulled us out. Here’s a picture of the truck all stuck.
It was super cool to hang out with one of my subscribers on the trip. We had good time talking about fishing and life. Something about spending time in the outdoors with others really brings people together. We were hi-fiving and having a blast. Reach out to me through my hire me page, and let’s plan a trip! The spring is getting close, and there is nothing better than spring time bass fishing. Don’t forget to subscribe to the blog, to stay stoked on your email for more trip reports to come.
