To all Hooked in the Heartland members:

Starting Friday, June 24th, we will begin fishing the I-80 Corridor lakes beginning with Bassway Strip. As discussed we will be fishing these with the goal of eventually fishing on all of them.

I will be departing from Red Cloud at 5:00 a.m. If anyone needs a ride call me. I currently only have one person riding with me at the time of this post.

Directions if you need them:

From exit 279, go a short distance on Highway 10 to the first left turn. Turn left and then immediately turn left again. Follow the dirt road north, then east 0.25 miles to the parking area.

This is the first of many, many I-80 Corridor lakes. This will be the thread where we will post our reports for this season.

Looking forward to seeing you on the water...

Fishing the I-80 Corridor 2016-213

This was the first of many I-80 Corridor Lakes planned for this year. It isn't one of the closest to my location, but it held great promise.

Since Les and I are retired we ended up being the only two on this trip. We left at 6 a.m. with hot coffee and a donut. It was an hour and a half drive for us. Plenty of time to sip coffee, eat a donut and trade fishing stories.

I chose this lake first because it has quite a reputation. The water is so good that it is the chosen body of water for divers in this region. It is reported to have many large Bass as well as other species; bluegill, channel cat, and crappie.

There are no amenities but it does have a stone block boat ramp. It turned out to be a wonderful launch for float tubes.

It was nice to be able to drive right to the waters edge for setup.

You gotta love the stark reminder that we live in a geographic location where this warm beautiful morning is temporary.

As you can see, Bassway Strip Lake deserves it's reputation! It's 7 acres of beautiful, clear water. While tubing you can see huge schools of fish pass right under you. I watched a very large Bass swim under me that is quite possibly a record fish!

There are many bluegill in this lake. I am planning on catching my Bluegill points for the series in this lake. I didn't fish for anything but Bass on this visit.

I managed to catch three Bass; 13" (1), 15" (2).
All were caught on a hollow body top water frog. I got lots of strikes. But they weren't aggressive and so I was unable to set a hook on them. Had I been able to set the hook on fifty percent of the strikes I would've easily landed fifteen or more fish.

I fished plastic worm and a plastic minnow without success.

It was a beautiful day on the water. I definitely plan to fish this lake again. Thanks for taking the time to read my report!
