MN Hawg Hunters June 7th 2016 Lake Calhoun Tournament Review #2

The "Calhoun Chain of Lakes" is one of the cities most well kept secrets in the bass fishing community.  I am sure this is primarily due to the fact that you cannot run an outboard on the lake, it is trolling motor only. This limited pressure produces some big fish that bite when you get a bait around them.  20 pound bags are common for a 5 fish limit.  Any time you run into that situation, its a hot lake.

The day started off quickly with a limit in about the first 30 minutes of fishing that weighed around 12-14 lbs.  Primary pattern was to focus on grass points with senkos and creature soft plastics.  This bite started to shift about half way through the day and we knew we had to make a move out to the main lake area.  We put the trolling motor on 100 and made a quick move.

Our focus was the same on the main lake, but the switch in location started to produce bigger fish moving out from the recent spawn.  We quickly culled up to our final weigh of over 17 lbs on a couple key fish close to the weed edge. Our 4+ lb kicker came with about an hour left in the day which would eventually push us over the top.  This Calhoun giant came on the beaver fished with a pegged slip sinker. 

A great start to the season for our team.  Looking forward to the next event on Buffalo Lake.
