Thread: Big Lake report

    Default Big Lake report

    I fished Big Lake yesterday for a few hours.
    I tried the shallows for pike 4.5 feet of water.
    I had 3 tip-ups set and no flags
    I did catch a 26" char while jigging

    I was on Big Lake on Sunday with my son. Had the pleasure of meeting Trooper Lindberg. Enough said about that. How do you use tip ups without bait? Congrats on the Char. We had a no fish day. Watch your regs and tackle folks.

    You can use whole uncut hearing on big lake on tip ups if I remember the regs right. There is more to it than that but I believe that's the only bait you can use is for pike and all others must be released.

    That's exactly right!
    Doesn't matter much though. I could have 30 tip-ups with live bait on all of them and I doubt I'd ever get a bite! Lol

    Any tips? I'm taking my dad who is visiting from Michigan tomorrow and I'd like to catch some if they're biting. Are people driving on pretty much everywhere now or still just in places?

    Depends on what you drive I guess, there's a little snow on the lake

    I'll probably be out there on a blue Polaris quad. Stop by and visit if you see me.

    I got his guy last week.

    Drove my truck on the lake on Big Lake Christmas Eve. Ice was cracking all around my truck, but didn't sweat it. We decided to drill a hole and set up the hut. As soon at the drill punched through the meager 8" of ice water came flooding on to the ice and never stopped. Must have been the weight of my truck (6500 lbs) and/or the weight of the new snow on the (not-so-thick) ice forcing water out. We decided going to breakfast at the Windbreak would be a getter option!
