Minnesota Family & Fishing Resort

Experience the best fishing vacation on the beautiful waters of Wasson Lake

Wasson Lake – a private northern Minnesota lake.

 

THE LAKE:  Wasson Lake is a 438 acre spring-fed lake offering 17 feet of water clarity. With a depth of 67 feet and numerous bays the lake offers great fishing structures. The shoreline has many submerged points surrounded by deep water, down timber, and large areas of coontail, cabbageweed and wild rice. There are 4 islands on the lake and NO public access so the lake is very private and quiet.

BASS FISHING:  Bass fishing is becoming ever more popular!!  The thrill of the catch, the rod bending experience and the best part….that bad boy jumping out of the water, giving you a glimpse of how big he is!!  It is not uncommon for guests to catch Largemouth Bass of up to 6 lbs and Smallmouth Bass of 4 lbs.  **PLEASE NOTE: to protect the larger bass in the lake, we ask that all smallmouth bass be released and all largemouth bass over 3 lbs also be released**    Bass Fishing: Minnesota DNR

CRAPPIE & BLUEGILL FISHING:  Crappie & Bluegill fishing has been an all time favorite for our guests.  We have guests that have been coming here for many years just because of the great pan fishing.  Crappie lengths range from 8″ – 14″ and Bluegill lengths range from 6″ – 10″ and sometimes more 🙂   **PLEASE NOTE: to protect Wasson Lake from a stunted sunfish population, we ask that all large sunfish be released.  Click HERE for information on how a lake can get a stunted population of sunfish.

NORTHERN PIKE FISHING:  Northern Pike are always a guaranteed hitter and if you’re one of those that know how to clean Northern Pike, you’ll definitely get yourself a meal (or two)!  Guests frequently get to experience a LARGE Northern Pike taking their smaller catch.  Northern Pike zones  **Loon Point Resort is located in the North-Central zone**  In the north-central zone, anglers can keep 10 northern pike, but not more than two pike longer than 26 inches; and all from 22 to 26 inches must be released. Northern pike taken by spearing follow the same rules except one pike may be between 22 and 26 inches or two larger than 26 inches.

STOP AQUATIC HITCHHIKERS  ais_400x190

Minnesota is renowned for its clean water, good fishing, and remarkable recreational opportunities – and we want to keep it that way for future visitors and future generations.

Unfortunately, some invasive species can harm Minnesota’s lakes, rivers, and forests. Aquatic invasive species such as Eurasian watermilfoil, zebra mussel, and spiny waterflea can harm fish habitats and disrupt water recreation activities. These plants, animals, and other unwanted species may “hitch a ride” in water, on boats, in firewood, or on other gear that people move into and around the state.

To help protect Minnesota’s precious water and woodlands and to comply with state law, please take the following precautions before you leave home.

Before traveling to Minnesota every boater must:

  • Clean all aquatic plants, zebra mussels, and other prohibited invasive species from boats and trailers. You may not transport aquatic plants or prohibited invasive species in the state, even if they are dead.
  • Drain water-related equipment (boat, ballast tanks, portable bait containers, and motor) and
    drain bilge, livewell, and baitwell by removing drain plugs. Keep drain plugs out and
    water-draining devices open while transporting watercraft. You may not transport water, or arrive at a water access with the drain plug in place, in Minnesota.
  • Dispose of unwanted bait, including minnows, leeches, worms and fish parts in the trash. If you want to keep live bait, drain bait containers and refill with bottled or tap water. It is illegal in Minnesota to release bait in the water or to release worms on the ground.

Additional recommended precautions:

Some aquatic invasive species can survive more than two weeks out of water, and they are often small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving boats and equipment to another water body, especially after leaving waters infested with zebra mussels or spiny waterfleas:

  • Spray with high-pressure water
  • Rinse with very hot water (at least 120 degrees F)
  • Dry for at least 5 days
