Big Marine???

4 posts in this topic

How is the fishing out there? I live on forest and I am going to bring a buddy fishing and he asked about big marine. I have fished it once a long time ago and actually don't think I caught anything, but would like to give it a try. We are catch and release guys we just go for fun. Bass, pike, walleyes, and crappies is what we fish for. Any tips for this lake? I have a H20c with the 07 lakemaster chip.

You'll find lot's of bass and pike in there. And compared to forest, there is alot less boat traffic. The bass tend to run on the small side, but there is potential for some bigger pike. I did really well with jointed rapalas along the weed edges earlier in the year.

If ya want to soak a sucker 8" or larger we always did really well off the long point on the north side of point in 30-35 ft.a small hump.

Cast spinner baits and you will get the pike pretty much everywhere. For bass, look either in the thick weeds or on deeper points. The water is pretty clear on Big Marine, and I think the crappies and walleye tend to stay in a little bit deeper water than you would find them on other area lakes.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
