Big bass fishing in North Iowa. North Iowa has a few good places to catch big bass. I have had really good luck fishing all the pits located around the Mason City area. Unfortunately you may have to be a little sneaky when it comes to a few of the pits. The pits in Lester Milligan Park or Big Blue as its known by the locals that live here can also produce some nice bass. Unfortunately this area has become very polluted over the years. People have treated it like a trash can rather than a nice recreational area.
