    lol i got a tip for big lake dont go to big lake. the cops hound you out there no bait is allowed no trebble hooks allowed and the fishing is really slow but when u do catch a fish its usually a nice fish. alot of people fish burnt point and some of them fish the islands alittle farther out and to the left i think one of them is gull island and if you you might want to try to catch a pike fish over by north shore where the creek is. now you know everything there is to know about big lake.

    I would go to the next lake over to the west of Big Lake. Try Flat Lake. You can get their by vechile and drive on it, and there is some really good size fish in there. I dont think it gets fish very much, and is just a little bit further down the road to travel, but not by much.

    I'm sure it's not an issue this late in the season, but always use caution driving the channel between the two. Flowing water always equals thinner ice.

    The road usually goes over a little spit of land instead of the creek.

    I don't know how manny are there, but how deep they are depends on what time of day you fish them.
    During the day the are in deep water. We have encountered them around 40 feet in big lake. at night they come in to shallower water.

    Yes the creek will be on the right a little ways. You can see it from the road. The road does go over a spit. Buddy of mine just caught a real nice Dolly out of there, about 20". Man I think I will go to Flat Lake in a couple of weeks, there really is some good fishing there for being so close. Going to Figure 8 lake for Pike this Saturday!!

    i belive you can use bait on flat lake yes. the regs only state no bait on big lake. if not i use a big spoon or a gitzit minnow white in color and sometimes mr.twisters. last year we found a spot where someone was using corn for bait (illegal) but we used just yellow jig heads and slayed them lol the cheaters helped me prosper

    Why is using corn illegal if bait is allowed?

    Don't know about up here, but corn is illegal in other states because fish cannot digest the cellulose so it plugs them up and kills'em.
