This is my first year ice fishing at Big Lake. The action seems a bit slow, but that is what I have read is normal. I have a had a little luck so far... I am looking for pike or burbot, which I have not caught yet. No problem catching trout though. I am fishing the north-east side in about 15 ft. I fish all day, from sun up to just after sun down. I jig a lot and keep a couple tip-ups going with herring. Any tips?
