Big Watab

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone had much luck on Big Watab Lake in St. Joseph?

I'll be visiting a friend and fishing for the first time. smile.gif What fish species is the best? Is trout fishing possible? Any info would be helpful.

Little Watab is north of St. Joseph about 2 miles and has no trout in it. Big Watab is about 8 - 10 miles west of St. Joseph (actually closer to Avon) and that lake has trout. I have not heard how they are doing for trout on Big Watab nor have I been out there yet. In years past I always had my best luck in mid to late June.

Don't forget that if you fish Big Watab, you need a trout stamp.

You do not need a trout stamp to fish watab. But you do need one if you want to fish for and keep trout. Watab is NOT a designated trout lake.

      In the summer and fall the night bite is excellent on Cass for eyes.  I'm not much help come winter time though.  With the clearer water due to zebra mussels, I would bet the night bite would be good.

      When I discover it I will let you know. I have not figured it out yet.

      Depends on your layout. If the walls can be easily removed inside that is usually the better option. If too much stuff is in the way...then yep...do as Cliff suggests.

      Is there a special dance or ritual I can do in an attempt at pleasing said fish gods? Cuz my moves and dance skills just are not up to par this year! Lol.
