Minnesota has excellent bass fishing lakes although it is a well-kept secret for most of the country. Most Minnesota bass lakes have either largemouth bass or smallmouth bass but few lakes offer both species in the same lake.

Spider Lake in northern Minnesota is one such lake proving excellent bass fishing for both largemouth and smallmouth bass fishing. Crappie, bluegill and perch are also found in abundance in Spider Lake.

Spider Lake is not crowded so it appeals to the serious bass fisherman and the lake is not fished very hard for bass. Numerous bays offer provide excellent bass fishing opportunities. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources reports that smallmouth bass are abundant with a higher than expected gill-net catch for similar lakes.

Northern Minnesota is known for the scenic forests and lakes. Spider Lake is a spring fed clear-water lake that supports good bass fishing. The lake has many weed lines, drop-offs, good baitfish populations and other features that support bass habitat.
